Mental Health Fitness

New year, new me? January is usually the time we start working on new year resolutions and working to be healthier and fitter but it’s important to also work on our mental health.

One in five Australians will experience a mental illness in any year and broadly mental illness will affect half of us over our lifetime. Despite the prevalence in our community 65% of people do not seek help, Black Dog Institute wishes to change that by breaking down the stigma of mental illness by offering free presentations to community groups.

We were joined by Elliot Waters, who has been giving Breaking Down Depression presentations for about six years.
