The Black Dog
Ball Story

The Black Dog Ball coincides with Queensland Mental Health Week. Mental Health Week is an annual national awareness event held every year to coincide with World Mental Health Day on 10th October. The Black Dog Ball is being staged on Saturday October 12 2019.

The Black Dog Ball is a not for profit organisation, run by a committee of passionate volunteers who truly believe can make a difference. The Black Tie Event, now in its seventh year, is staged to raise awareness of the importance of mental health and wellbeing, and to remove the stigma associated with mental illness and depression. In addition to raising awareness, funds are also raised to benefit the Central Queensland community. Through consultation with mental health practitioners, community members and organisations, the Black Dog Ball Committee identify a CQ mental health initiative, organisation or group, where funds are required to provide maximum benefit to community members who are struggling with their mental health and may be at risk of suicide.
