Inverell High School students and teachers went 'mental' on Friday - mental for mullets.
Many students taking on the iconic Aussie hairstyle to raise as much money as they could for the Black Dog Institute.
"Overall throughout both the on the day fundraiser and online campaigns we raised $6590," SRC representative Max McFarlane enthused.
On the day itself, they got a total of $990 for the fundraising efforts.
However, the IHS Mullets for Mental Health Team also raised a tonne of cash from their online fundraiser and other campaigns conducted by individual students, raising $5600.
Black Dog Institute's Mullets For Mental Health encouraged residents to shape and grow their mullet to raise much-needed funds for mental health research.
Suicide is the leading cause of death among Australians aged 15-44, and roughly 50 per cent of people reporting symptoms of mental illness don't seek help.
IHS's mullets will help the Institute drive real change through ground-breaking research into the early detection, prevention and treatment of common mental health disorders.
