Mental Health Awareness Month

May 2021 

MSA is coming together to host a Mental Health Awareness Month in May 2021. We are coming together across the country throughout the month of May to support the Black Dog Institute. Our official fundraising weekend is the 15th-16th of May. However, you can choose to support the Black Dog Institute anytime throughout May. 

You can raise funds as either an individual or as a team. So register now to support mental health research. 

Black Dog Institute's research shows that exercise has many benefits for physical and mental health. Just running for 15 minutes a day or walking for an hour has been shown to reduce the risk of major depression by 26%.

We encourage members to be active and connected because 1 in 5 of us will experience symptoms of mental illness in any given year. In Australia, that’s around 5 million people. Roughly 60% of these people won’t seek help.
