One Foot Forward with the Black Dog Institute

Walk, run or roll in solidarity for the 1 in 5 Australians who experience a mental illness each year. Together, we can show them they are not alone.

It’s easy to take part and gives you the chance to get moving for a great cause this October.

The challenge is to walk 40km, 60km, 100km, 150km, or a distance that suits you, for the 1 in 5 Australians who experience symptoms of mental illness every year.

By taking part, you are helping fund crucial mental health research and support services at Black Dog Institute.

Big Blue Table @ Beyond Blue

During Mental Health Month there is more than one way to show your support.

Join Big Blue Table and raise funds and awareness for mental health. Beyond Blue is inviting you to fight the stigma of mental health — one meal at a time.

Whether it’s by hosting an extra long lunch in the office, decking your whole kitchen out in blue, or having a picnic in the park, each meal you have can lead to life-changing conversations.

By hosting a meal with your guests, you can create a safe space where everyone feels comfortable talking about mental health anywhere, anytime.

Each conversation and meal can make all the difference.

Find out more and register through the Beyond Blue Big Blue Table website.
