It is a day to wear an exciting hat and spread awareness of the 1 in 5 Australians suffering a mental health disorder.

About Hat Day
Hat Day began as a fun and easy way for Rotary Clubs around Australia to get together to raise money for mental health research through Australian Rotary Health.
Since its fruition over ten years ago, Hat Day is now an annual event in every Rotary Club's calendar. A day for all to wear an exciting hat and raise money for the 1 in 5 Australians who are suffering a mental health disorder every year.
Hat Day events are not just about wearing an exciting hat. Rotary Clubs have hosted Hat Day themed raffle nights, murder mystery role playing dinners and even fashion show extravaganzas!
100% of Hat Day proceeds go into mental health research. Starting from 2023, Australian Rotary Health will be narrowing its research to the mental health of 0-12 year olds.
