Supporting Australians struggling with mental health.

Changing how Australians cope with mental health.

  • What we do

    The Chamberlain Foundation is a suicide prevention and mental health charity providing support to organisation whose services help Australians prevent and recover from these experiences. We help fund programs that support Australia's first responders, volunteer emergency workers, service men and women and the wider community.

  • Why we do it

    After losing a close friend to suicide in 2015, Ray, Brian, and Peter Chamberlain established the Chamberlain Foundation. By supporting services that help those at risk of suicide, they aim to prevent other Australian families from experiencing the same pain.

  • How we do it

    Each year we run fundraising events to challenge participants both mentally and physically. These include the Razor Ride and the Chambo Challenge. We also like to have fun and celebrate! We host the annual “Brothers Lunch” to thank our sponsors and donors and raise more funds for our cause.


Our first responders, service men and women and volunteer emergency workers: these are Australia’s real everyday heroes. Every day in so many ways, our nation’s first responders and Defence Force personnel put their lives on the line to save the lives of others, to protect property and to keep our communities safe.

We are committed to having an even a greater impact and becoming more strategic in our funding of mental health initiatives. To fund more purposeful projects at a more sustainable level, the Foundation needs you to make a special commitment to these people. Here’s how you can help.

Whether it’s trekking from Bermagui to Mount Kosciuszko, or completing a gruelling military-style obstacle course, our participants give their all to raise money and awareness for mental health and suicide prevention organisations.
