Catriona Bisset is an Olympian and the Australian record holder over 800m. But for a decade, she left the sport she loved. Anxiety became a constant companion through her teen years, and centred on one thing she couldn’t outrun – her body.
Through therapy and self-compassion, she has learnt not to fear her anxiety, depression and suicidality.
This is a story about becoming friends with different parts of yourself.
And running with anxiety, not from it.
About Beyond Blue
Established in October 2000, Beyond Blue initially focused on raising awareness of depression and reducing the associated stigma. As our knowledge and impact on people’s lives broadened, through research and community engagement, we added the key issue of anxiety conditions in 2011 and, more recently, suicide prevention to our core purpose.
