Our Story


Who we are

One in Five Australians are suffering from a mental illness. ONE IN FIVE wants to find cures for mental illness.  We want to turn One into None.

One in five is different from all other mental health charities. We are the only ones that are 100% dedicated to raising funds for medical research. We believe research is the key to finding the answers, discovering better treatments and hopefully unlocking cures. As such, 95% of all funds raised go directly to our research partners. We are proud to support leading Australian mental illness experts at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health and Monash Health.

One in five is a volunteer-based organisation. We receive no government funding, and so all funds raised come directly from our events like the Extreme Challenge, the Extremely Long Lunch, and donations from our amazing community.
