1 in 5 Australians experiences a mental health condition each year. 3 million Australians are living with depression or anxiety. 8 Australians take their lives each day. That's nearly 3,000 lives lost each year. 180 Australians attempt to take their lives each day.
The tragic loss of our loved ones to suicide drives Black Dog Ride to build a community culture of awareness, inclusion, and acceptance.
Breaking down the barrier of silence encourages friends, family, and colleagues to seek help because mental illnesses are just that, illnesses. They can be managed and people living with them can lead meaningful, fulfilling lives.
Fostering awareness is the catalyst for encouraging help-seeking behaviour and preventing suicide.
Help Black Dog Ride break down barriers and start conversations by joining thousands of riders on 18 March to kick-start a national conversation around suicide prevention.Add to my calendar
