On the 29 September 2019, Mark Smith, our Purchasing and Stock Co-ordinator will be going on the ‘Hike for Mental Health’ to raise money for Black Dog Institute.

Along with Kylie Foote, they will be embarking on a trek across the Great Wall of China. In addition to supporting a fantastic cause, both Mark and Kylie are looking forward to the physical and mental challenge. They will spend nine days trekking the Great Wall and visiting rural Chinese villages. Every kilometre covered will help expand Black Dog Institute’s community programs across Australia. If you’d like to donate head to their Everyday Hero page.

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.
