GET INVOLVED hat day Lift the Lid on Mental Illness

image description Why Support Hat Day?


1 in 5 Aussies are affected by a mental illness every year, but it’s not something we tend to talk about. These illnesses include anxiety, depression, eating disorders, dementia, schizophrenia and many more. This is why it's so important that we Lift the Lid on Mental Illness by funding mental health research.

By supporting Hat Day, you’ll be making a real difference by helping to raise funds for important research focusing on early intervention and prevention of mental illness in young people aged 0-25. To find out about the types of research your donations could go towards, check out 'The Research Behind Lift the Lid' podcast here on YouTube.

*Decorate your own hats at home with a small group (depending on restrictions in your area).
