One Foot Forward Together puts our research into practice. This wellness and music walking event aims to connect the community to start conversations around mental health, help to reduce the stigma, and encourage more people to seek help.

Mullets for Mental Health

Always wanted a mullet ... Thinking “no one would even see the luscious locks I’m growing on my zoom meeting”…Or just always wanted to try it but didn’t know if you had the confidence to pull off such a majestic hairstyle?

What if it was only for a month....?

Black Dog Institute’s Mullets For Mental Health is encouraging you to shape and grow your mullet for the month of September to raise much needed funds for mental health research.

Suicide is the leading cause of death among Australians aged 15-44, and 60% of Australians reporting symptoms of mental illness don’t seek help.

Your mullet will help us drive real change through ground breaking research into the early detection, prevention and treatment of common mental health disorders.

More Info

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.
