Extremely Long Lunch 2023

Saturday 28 October 2023

One in Five's annual fundraising event to raise vital funds for mental illness research.

Women's Mental Health Lunch 2023

This very special event, our 2nd Women's Mental Health Lunch, raised much needed funds for medical research into eating disorders. We heard from experts working in the area of medical research and learnt more about the devastating impact this illness has on people living with the disorder.

Impact Giving

You'd be amazed by the generosity of small/medium business owners across Australia. Each time someone buys from one of our supporting business partners, they support One in Five with a percentage of sales.
So while you support them, they support us.

Create a Fundraiser

We're in a partnership with Shout for Good where you can create your own fundraising event and raise much needed funds for mental health research.
