My Story

I’m taking part in the Blackmores Run to raise funds for the Black Dog Institute. Their work towards Mental Health is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference!! If you know someone suffering from mental health concerns, reach out to them and talk to them. Let them know that while you may not completely understand how they are feeling, that you are there for them...remind them that they are loved. Thank you so much, Love Clevy xx

About my team: Strength in Struggles

Strength in Struggles is raising much needed funds for Black Dog Institute by participating in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2018. Did you know that one in five (20%) Australians aged 16-85 experience a mental illness in any year!!! The most common mental illnesses are depressive, anxiety and substance use disorder. The Black Dog Institute is dedicated to understanding, preventing and treating mental illness. They are about creating a world where mental illness is treated with the same level of concern, immediacy and seriousness as physical illness; where scientists work to discover the causes of illness and new treatments, and where discoveries are immediately put into practice through health services, technology and community education. We would love your support! Please donate and share this page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! Thank you for your generosity!

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.
