Black Dog Institute's social connection challenge

While many of us are heading indoors, it is important that we keep mentally and physically active while staying connected with our friends and family.

So we are challenging you to create a challenge over 14 days that gets your mind and body moving for all your friends to see (at a safe, physical distance).

Choose your challenge, step up, stay connected and support mental health research!

Choose your challenge

One in five Australians are affected by mental illness each year.

Mental illness can be overwhelming, crippling and isolating.

The Black Dog Institute has a vision of a mentally healthier world.

We bring together the strength of a medical research institute and a not-for profit organisation, dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by poor mental health.

We aim to significantly reduce the incidence of mental illness and suicide, remove stigma and empower all people to live the most mentally healthy life possible.
