Scientia Professor Helen Christensen, Director & Chief Scientist, Black Dog Institute.
Coates Hire and The Black Dog Institute partnered in December 2015 to support people who suffer from mental illness.
Whether in the good times, or the tough times, at the core of our culture we care deeply for our team, customers and the community.
Alongside The Black Dog Institute: we believe in peace of mind and a world where it’s ok to talk about feeling down.
To support people who suffer from mental illness - with every hire made in the month of December 2015, we made a a commitment to donate $2 to The Black Dog Institute. This saw us collectively raise $71,162.
These funds raised are the start of a long journey dedicated toward looking out for our mates and eliminating the stigma associated with mental health issues.
