My Story

I've created this page because josh and Iona want to make a difference. I'm inspired by the work of Black Dog Institute and wanted to support them by raising money as part of my participation in Forget Me Not Fund. The money raised from the running festival will be added to Josh and Iona's everyday hero account. The more people that know about Black Dog Institute, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Josh and Iona were superheroes. They were always helping others even though they had their own battles to fight. Josh and Iona may not be with us anymore but by donating on their behalf they will still make a difference in people's lives. Forever in our hearts. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot. In memory of Josh and Iona is raising much needed funds for Black Dog Institute by participating in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2017. The work of Black Dog Institute is really important and we want to do what we can to support them. You can help, too! Please donate and share this page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! Thank you for your generosity and support!

About my cause: Black Dog Institute

Our vision

A mentally healthier world.

Our mission

Enabling mentally healthier lives through innovations in science, medicine, education, public policy and knowledge translation.

What we do

The Black Dog Institute was founded in 2002 and is internationally recognised as a pioneer in the identification, prevention and treatment of mental illness, and the promotion of wellbeing.

We aim to improve the lives of people affected by mental illness through the rapid translation of high quality research into improved clinical treatments, increased accessibility to mental health services and delivery of long-term public health solutions.

Our unique approach incorporates clinical services with our cutting-edge research, our health professional training and community education programs. We combine expertise in clinical management with innovative research to develop new, and more effective strategies for people living with mental illness. We also place emphasis on teaching people to recognise the symptoms of poor mental health in themselves and others, as well as providing them with the right psychological tools to hold the black dog at bay.

We work directly in all parts of the community as well as guiding the development of new and improved policy. We place focus on those with specific mental health needs like young people, Indigenous communities, men, and high-risk workforces.

Our primary areas of mental health research and treatment include: depression, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, workplace mental health, adolescents and young people, suicide prevention, e-mental health, and positive psychology and wellbeing.
