Fighting depression and anxiety with BeyondBlue

Many of us have been touched directly or indirectly by depression or anxiety. Did you know that depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide? In Australia, it’s estimated that 45 per cent of people will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime. Overall an estimated 3 million Australians are living with depression or anxiety, which affect their well-being, personal relationships, career and productivity.

BeyondBlue is an organisation with a mission to equip Australians with the knowledge and skills to protect their own mental health, as well as break down the barriers that prevent people from speaking up and reaching out.

At Torque Toyota, we are proud to support programs assisting Australians both on a community and national scale. We were approached by BeyondBlue to take part of a fundraising program running this October with a few dealers. The target was to raise funds for the cause and also raise awareness. As part of our engagement, we were proud to donate a commission of $20 per Certified Used Vehicle sold and delivered for the month of October to Beyondblue.

We are happy to announce that Torque Toyota has contributed to the $10,240 raised by the Northern Region Toyota dealer network.

We believe that if we all do our little bit, we can make a huge difference in the end. We also want to thank our guests for their participation.
