For all Black Dog participants please Join our Team so we can run as one to stand up against the stigma surrounding Mental Health.
Your generosity will help Black Dog Institute to improve the lives of people impacted by mental illness and suicide.
Did you know that 1 in 5 Australians experiences mental illness in any given year, and about half of all people will experience mental health problems at some stage in their life? Despite being the ‘lucky country’, suicide is now our number one cause of death in young people – ahead of road accidents and cancer.
That’s why your support is so important to us. Your gift enables us to continue our ground breaking research, expand our education programs, as well as help us deliver new clinical treatments and online mental health tools.
Please help us by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about The 2018 City2Surf , the greater the impact, so please also spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
One in five Australians are affected by mental illness each year.
Mental illness can be overwhelming, crippling and isolating. Black Dog is dedicated to supporting and improving the lives of people affected by mood disorders.
We educate and empower individuals by partnering with community groups and health services. We work with doctors and health care professionals, schools and workplaces, supporting them to triumph over mental illness.
We offer special expertise in diagnosis, treatment and prevention for depression and bipolar disorder. Our on and offline treatment and research programs are translated directly to clinical interventions. They are unique in mental health.
The Black Dog Institute has 4 important goals
to diagnose mood disorders accurately and early,
treat them using innovative, effective and accessible strategies,
prevent their onset by understanding why and who they affect and
to reduce the overall impact of mental illness and save lives.
Black Dog Institute's vision is a world where the onset of depression and suicide can be prevented and treated. With your help we can make this vision a reality.
