Charity of the Month - Black Dog Institute

Mendl is a Non-profit brand that takes no monetary benefit from purchases beyond what is necessary to keep the wheels turning over and cover our business overheads. The profit of all purchases made on the Mendl website goes directly to a charity of the month; to someone who is having a tangible positive impact on Mental Health in Melbourne for the better.

We have long recognised that a number of charities and groups are already impacting real change in the Mental Health sphere in Australia. We want everyone to be involved in the fight for greater communication and support for those that truly need it, hence why we believe that our profit is best returned to those that can use it best.

June's charity of the month is Black Dog Institute.

Black Dog Institute is a medical research institute working to improve the lives of people impacted by social isolation, mental illness and suicide. They do this through ‘translational’ research. Integrating research studies, education programs, digital tools and apps, clinical services, and public resources to discover new solutions, foster connections and create real-world change.

1 in 5 of Australians will experience symptoms of mental illness in any given year and roughly 60% of these people won’t seek help. Thanks to your support, Black Dog Institute can continue turning ground breaking research into life-saving action.
