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.
