1 in 5 of us will experience symptoms of mental illness in any given year. In Australia that's around 5 million people. And roughly 60% of these people won't seek help.
Black Dog Institute (BDI) is a global leader in mental health research and the only Medical Research Institute (MRI) in Australia to investigate mental health across the lifespan.
Our partnership with BDI is designed to support their vision: To create a mentally healthier world. And during these challenging times mental health has never been more important.
We want to make you aware of the online tools and resources which you can access from BDI so you can gain skills to better manage your mental health as well as provide support to your friends, family, loved ones or colleagues. We will also share useful information along with opportunities for you to participate in some fantastic community and fundraising events including One Foot Forward during mental health month.
By participating in these events your generosity will support BDI’s innovative and ground-breaking research in suicide prevention, youth intervention and workplace mental health, as well as help expand their education programs for communities across Australia.
Together, we can make a real difference including reducing the severity and incidence of mental illness, actively reduce suicide rates, destigmatise mental illness, and empower everyone to look after their mental health.
