To honour the memory of a loved one, you can establish a Forget Me Not Fund.  

The Black Dog Institute is immensely grateful for every contribution made to support our work in memory of someone who was cherished and who is no longer with us.

A Forget Me Not Fund webpage honours someone special while raising donations to help those living with depression.

All donations support the Black Dog Institute's mission to advance the understanding, diagnosis and management of the mood disorders by continuously raising clinical, research, education and training standards. In so doing, the Institute aims to improve the lives of those affected - and in turn - the lives of their families and friends.


If you need any assistance setting up a page please don't hesitate to email or call (02)9382 3710  for our fundraising team.

Black Dog Institute

One in five Australians are affected by mental illness each year.

Mental illness can be overwhelming, crippling and isolating. Black Dog is dedicated to supporting and improving the lives of people affected by mood disorders.

We educate and empower individuals by partnering with community groups and health services. We work with doctors and health care professionals, schools and workplaces, supporting them to triumph over mental illness.

We offer special expertise in diagnosis, treatment and prevention for depression and bipolar disorder. Our on and offline treatment and research programs are translated directly to clinical interventions. They are unique in mental health.

The Black Dog Institute has 4 important goals

* to diagnose mood disorders accurately and early,
* treat them using innovative, effective and accessible strategies,
* prevent their onset by understanding why and who they affect and
* to reduce the overall impact of mental illness and save lives.

Black Dog Institute's vision is a world where the onset of depression and suicide can be prevented and treated. With your help we can make this vision a reality.
