Putting Health in Mind
The Black Dog Institute is a not-for-profit organisation and research institute dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by poor mental health.
We are internationally recognised as pioneers in the diagnosis, early intervention, prevention and treatment of mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder. We are also at the forefront of suicide prevention, and prominent in the delivery of treatments and programs using mobile and online technologies (e-Health).
Our unique approach incorporates clinical services with cutting-edge research, health professional training and education programs to workplaces, schools and the community. We combine expertise in clinical treatments with innovative research, to develop new and more effective strategies for people living with mental disorders.
We place emphasis on empowering people in the community to recognise the symptoms of poor mental health in themselves and others, and providing them with evidence-based tools and programs to enable them to live mentally healthier lives.
By reducing the incidence of mental illness, promoting mental wellbeing and reducing stigma, we can help people to reach their full potential and ultimately save lives.
