Black Dog Ride 1 Dayer 2018

SUNDAY 18TH MARCH 2018

QLD 1 DAYER 2018 LEGS

Black Dog Ride's iconic annual 1 Dayer aims to start a national conversation about depression and suicide prevention.

Help us get the country talking and join a Black Dog Ride 1 Dayer in QLD!


1 Dayer 2018 Background

Since 2010, Black Dog Ride's 1 Dayer has brought together Black Dog Riders for an enjoyable and meaningful day of riding, uniting like minded people for a vital mission - raising awareness of depression and suicide prevention. 8 people a day take their lives, and Black Dog Riders uniting together under one banner with one voice aims to amplify a national message of mental health awareness to prevent this tragic loss of life to suicide.

Start the Conversation! Register for Black Dog Ride's 1 Dayer 2018 today!


The Cause

1 in 5 Australians experience a mental health condition each year. 3 million Australians are living with depression or anxiety. 8 Australians take their lives each day. That's nearly 3,000 lives lost each year. 180 Australians attempt to take their lives each day. The tragic loss of our loved ones to suicide drives Black Dog Ride to build a community culture of awareness, inclusion and acceptance. Breaking down the barrier of silence encourages our friends, family and colleagues to seek help, because mental illnesses are just that, illnesses. They can be managed and people living with them can lead meaningful, fulfilling lives. Fostering awareness is the catalyst for encouraging help seeking behaviour and preventing suicide.

Help Black Dog Ride break down barriers and start conversations, join thousands of riders on 18th March 2018 to kick start a national conversation around suicide prevention.
