beyondblue - our official charity partner
We've teamed up with mental health organisation beyondblue to raise awareness of depression and anxiety in farming communities.
Case IH has also pledged to donate around $100,000 a year to the charity and we're calling on our staff, dealers and customers to help raise money.
According to beyondblue, around three million Australians are living with depression or anxiety and farmers, in particular, experience high rates of stress and depression compared to the general population.
Case IH will donate $50 from the sale of each new tractor, combine harvester, self-propelled sprayer, cane harvester, windrower and baler to beyondblue.
To help build awareness, stickers advertising the beyondblue advice line will be placed in all new Case IH agricultural machinery and beyondblue's literature on depression and anxiety is available at Case IH dealer outlets across the country.
We're breaking down the stigma associated with depression and anxiety by regularly posting on social media and involving beyondblue volunteers at field days and other events.
With so many people touched by depression, stress and anxiety, the team at Case IH Australia wanted to make a difference. This is why we are proud to support beyondblue as our official charity partner.
If you or someone you know needs support, learn how to tackle the problem by calling the beyondblue support line on 1300 224 636.
