Why we are different

One in Five is changing the face of mental illness, funding medical research into finding a cure for mental illnesses including schizophrenia, bi-polar and depression to turn One into None. Since 2003, we have raised over $2 million dollars with 90% of all funds raised going directly to either Monash Health or the Florey Institute.

How we started

It started with one. It will end with none.

On New Year’s Day 2001, a creative, intelligent young man named Matt Wardlaw succumbed to mental illness. The pain of his illness had become so intolerable he was driven to take his own life. Matt’s tragic yet all too common story inspired a group of his friends and family to come together and address one of Australia’s biggest health issues – mental illness.
