Black hard hats raise money for mental health

Black Dog A mine services company is donating two dollars from the sale of every limited edition black hard hat to the Black Dog Institute in the lead up to mental health week, 5-12 October.

ProChoice Safety Gear are using the specially designed black hard hats to raise money for Black Dog;  a founding member of the Mentally Healthy Workplace Alliance, a Government body formed to devise mental health best practice in the workplace.

According to Black Dog, “1 in 5 Australians will suffer from a mental illness in any given year. This figure affects business as much as the sufferer, as it is estimated that mental illness costs the Australian economy as much as $11 Billion per year. “

“Mental illness causes a higher rate of absenteeism in the workplace than physical illness or injury.”
