About The Black Dog Institute

The Black Dog Institute is a not-for-profit medical research institute based in Sydney. It aims to improve the lives of people affected by mental illness. They are pioneers in the diagnosis, early intervention, prevention and treatment of mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and they are also at the forefront of suicide prevention.

Donations which are given to the Institute are used to

  • Research into suicide prevention and clinical treatment
  • Expand their education programmes throughout urban and regional Australia
  • Diagnose mood disorders accurately and early

In short .. any amount you donate will be hugely appreciated and used extremely wisely and well. I see walking 2000kms for them as my small way of helping them to improve the lives of other people affected by mental illness.
