My Story

One more sleep and now hoping to crack $1000....So I have decided to take part in a Half marathon this Sunday to complete a goal of mine I set 2 years ago and now is the time. As I am running anyway and this festival is about raising money for charities I’ve decided to back one I believe in and see if I can raise some money. By donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! I don’t normally ask other people to donate money but feel this is a worthwhile cause and would love your support in raising some money for the Black Dog Institute who are doing great things in raising awareness of mental health, suicide prevention and depression. If you can spare $10 (2 cups of coffee) or more it will help a lot to go towards a great charity and would truly appreciate it and only takes a few minutes to donate. You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me.

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.
