Since 2003, we have raised over $1.8 million, funding mental illness research to help find a cure.

With your donation, we can improve the lives of one in five Australians who experience a mental illness.

  • $20 pays to process and analyse tissue in experiments performed to understand the causes of mental illness.
  • $40 can provide 1 hour of a research assistant's laboratory time, speeding our progress towards results.
  • $50 pays for specialised substances like molecular dyes vital for completing experiments.
  • $100 is enough to provide laboratory plastic ware to test a potential new treatment for mental illness.
  • $500 is enough to provide new laboratory equipment for genetic experiments requiring ultra clean conditions.
