1 in 5 Australians will experience a mental illness this year – our family members, friends, colleagues and loved ones.
Sadly, 60% of people with a mental illness will not seek help.
As a nation, we need to do more to support people living with mental health issues, so they know that support is out there.
The Black Dog Institute is dedicated to understanding, preventing and treating mental illness.
We are about creating a world where mental illness is treated with the same level of concern, understanding and seriousness as physical illness; where scientists work to discover the causes of illness and new treatments, and where discoveries are immediately put into practise through health services, technology and community education.
