Make a regular gift
Our researchers are committed, our regular supporters even more so.
Making a regular gift is a great way to support the Black Dog Institute, it takes just minutes to set up and you can feel proud knowing that you are a Research Hero!
Why your regular gift makes such a difference
There's no easy answer to mental disorders like depression and anxiety. Suicide rates are increasing across all ages and for young Australians, it is the number one cause of death, taking more young people than car accidents.
It’s a big goal that Black Dog Institute researchers are working towards, to help us all live mentally healthier lives. But like the incredible researchers you will be supporting with your regular gift, as a Research Hero you are making an ongoing commitment to help improve the mental health of all Australians, including our community’s most vulnerable.
Not only will you help those experiencing poor mental health, you’ll also help us to develop strategies and programs to improve the outcomes for those at high risk of developing a debilitating mental health issue in the future.
You’ll help expand Black Dog Institute’s online interventions, education programs and clinical services. You’ll help build awareness and break down the stigma around mental illness and in doing so you’ll help prevent suicides and save lives.
As a Research Hero , we’ll keep you updated on the work you are supporting, so you can stand proud as a member of a unique group of individuals who understand the importance of supporting mental health research and programs
