At Trafficwerx NT, we’re more than just about managing traffic; we’re about supporting our community in meaningful ways. One of the initiatives close to our hearts is our ongoing partnership with Black Dog Ride, a nationwide charity dedicated to raising awareness about depression and suicide prevention.

What is Black Dog Ride?

Black Dog Ride is an annual motorcycle event that aims to destigmatise mental health issues and spark open conversations about mental wellbeing. Their rides bring communities together, fostering a supportive environment while raising funds for mental health initiatives.

Our Commitment to Black Dog Ride

Year after year, Trafficwerx NT proudly stands alongside Black Dog Ride Darwin, offering our expertise in creating Traffic Management Plans for their events. Our volunteer work ensures that these rides are not only safe but also successful in spreading their vital message.

Why it Matters

Mental health awareness is crucial, especially in regions like the Northern Territory where support resources can be limited. By partnering with Black Dog Ride, we’re actively contributing to breaking down the stigma surrounding mental health and encouraging individuals to seek help when needed.

Get Involved

You can be a part of this impactful movement too. Whether you’re a motorcycle enthusiast or simply passionate about mental health advocacy, there are numerous ways to get involved with Black Dog Ride. Join their annual rides, volunteer your time, or donate to support their cause. Every contribution counts towards creating a brighter, more mentally healthy future for all.

How It Helps

Participating in Black Dog Ride or supporting their initiatives isn’t just about raising awareness; it’s about making a tangible difference in the lives of those struggling with mental health challenges. By amplifying their message and providing resources for suicide prevention, we’re actively saving lives and offering hope to those who need it most.

Watch out for Winston!

Keep an eye out for Winston, the huge inflatable black dog, at events around Darwin this dry season. Winston promotes the Black Dog Ride charity and serves as a symbol of hope and support for those battling mental health issues.
