Who is the Black Dog Institute?

The Black Dog Institute is dedicated to understanding, preventing and treating mental illness. They are about creating a world where mental illness is treated with the same level of concern, immediacy and seriousness as physical illness; where scientists work to discover the causes of illness and new treatments, and where discoveries are immediately put into practice through health services, technology and community education.

Black Dog Institute Vision

A mentally healthier world.

Black Dog Institute Mission

Enabling mentally healthier lives through innovations in science, medicine, education, public policy and knowledge translation.

What they do

The Black Dog Institute was founded in 2002 and is internationally recognised as a pioneer in the identification, prevention and treatment of mental illness, and the promotion of wellbeing.

They aim to improve the lives of people affected by mental illness through the rapid translation of high quality research into improved clinical treatments, increased accessibility to mental health services and delivery of long-term public health solutions.

Their unique approach incorporates clinical services with their cutting-edge research, their health professional training and community education programs. They combine expertise in clinical management with innovative research to develop new, and more effective strategies for people living with mental illness. They also place emphasis on teaching people to recognise the symptoms of poor mental health in themselves and others, as well as providing them with the right psychological tools to hold the black dog at bay.

The Black Dog Institute work directly in all parts of the community as well as guiding the development of new and improved policy. They place focus on those with specific mental health needs like young people, Indigenous communities, men, and high-risk workforces.

Their primary areas of mental health research and treatment include: depression, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, workplace mental health, adolescents and young people, suicide prevention, e-mental health, and positive psychology and wellbeing.
