The Black Dog Institute is a world-leader in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mood disorders such as depression and bipolar disorder.
Founded in 2002, the Institute combines expertise in clinical management with cutting edge research to develop new, and more effective, strategies for people living with mood disorders.
Our research extends from risk identification genomic studies to development of websites to enhance mental resilience in teenagers. We are conducting clinical trials into new treatment methods as well as conducting ground-breaking imaging studies to “see” what happens to the brain when depression strikes.
Whilst diagnosis and treatment is of utmost importance, the Black Dog Institute also places emphasis on teaching people to recognise the symptoms of mood disorders in themselves and others, as well providing them with the right psychological tools to hold the black dog at bay.
The Black Dog Institute partners with universities, health services and community groups across the country. We focus on access, running education programs in regional areas and providing a number of clinically-endorsed training programs for both health care professionals and workplaces.
