As a medical research institute and not-for-profit the Black Dog Institute aims to improve the lives of people affected by mental illness. Our vision is of a mentally healthier world.

We are pioneers in the diagnosis, early intervention, prevention and treatment of mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and at the forefront of suicide prevention. We place research at the heart of everything we do because the majority of mental illnesses can be treated, and many can even be prevented.

Our research findings are:
• integrated in the care and treatment we provide in our clinics
• driving the development of self-help eMental Health programs (online and mobile apps)
• forming the basis of our education programs for health professionals, workplaces, schools and community groups
• informing national and state mental health policies, and consumer awareness.
The Black Dog Institute greatly values its generous supporters who advocate for us, help reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness, donate and raise much needed funds.

Working together to promote good health and wellbeing
