"I am very pleased to announce the board has unanimously supported Julia Gillard taking over from me in July the first this year," Kennett said.

"In Julia's hands the organisation will go from strength to strength."

Gillard said it was an honour to take over the leadership of the organisation which advocates on issues surrounding depression, anxiety and suicide.

"Beyond Blue is such an important organization to the Australian community that I do feel a special sense of delight at having been selected to lead," Gillard said.
