Drive Against Depression’s purpose is a four-pillared approach to supporting those with mental illness, particularly depression and/or anxiety, as well as their support people and families. Whether you’re a lifelong car enthusiast or you just like a particular colour car (or you’re somewhere in the middle) Drive Against Depression offers an important opportunity to:

 Start, then continue, the conversation about mental health.

Find the pathway to seek help.


Engage with ongoing support services for continued encouragement.

Sitting beside someone while going for a drive provides an ideal forum for unguarded conversations and a chance to reconnect with a passion. Perhaps it’s driving, the countryside, good food, the outdoors or making time in a busy life to talk to your mates, it all plays an important part in mental wellness.

Our Mission


Drive Against Depression works to achieve increased mental health awareness in Australia, particularly relating to depression and anxiety. Our intent is to remove the stigma surrounding these issues by encouraging open conversations over a shared enthusiasm for motoring.

Although those droplets remained on the car the next morning, the skies were thankfully clear, returning to the dazzling blue of earlier in the week, the fluffy…

The whole premise of Drive Against Depression came about while escaping the clogged city freeways in favour of a drive in the countryside. And while it is wonderful to share such moments of freedom with like-minded friends, there are times when all you are craving is to feel interaction with the car you are driving. I’ve been fortunate to drive…

Driving Opinion: Why Joy is not Only a BMW Slogan…

By Damion Smy Your opinion on shoes is not valid. Your opinion on washing machines hardly respected. Your political views silently opposed as smiling faces around you superficially agree. Yet everyone has an opinion on cars – for better or for worse – and while this can cause arguments, fractious relationships and clandestine societies, we can all rejoice in one…
