Mullets for Mental Health

Show you're all ears this September! Grow a MULLET for Mental Health.

Have you always wanted a mullet? Maybe you always wanted to try it but didn’t have the confidence to pull off such a majestic hairstyle, or maybe you have one already and want to see it bloom...

If so, show you're all ears and be a Mullets For Mental Health legend; shape in 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 approximately 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.

Your mullet is driving real world change!

At Black Dog Institute, we stand for a mentally healthier world. We are proud to be the only medical research institute in Australia that works to reduce mental illness and suicide for adults and young people alike.  Unlike some other NGOs which are government-funded, all our work is funded competitively, either through grants, fee-for service income or generous donations like yours.

Here are just a few of the ways your mullets have made a difference:

  • In response to COVID-19, rapidly adapting our free community and school programs into digital workshops and webinars and supporting their ongoing delivery. This has already enabled us to double our reach compared to the same time last year.

  • Supporting our research, to better understand why some people at risk of suicide don’t seek help, and uncover better ways of reaching and assisting them.

  • Development and trial of the new app for managing ongoing suicidal thoughts.

Hair we go!
