The Anika Foundation

The Anika Foundation was established in 2005 to raise funds for the purpose of supporting research into adolescent depression and suicide, which have become amongst the most significant (but least well considered) medical and social problems of our time. The Anika Foundation is governed by a Board comprising Dr Adrian Blundell-Wignall (Chair), Dr Philip Lowe, Mr Glenn Stevens, Mr Jeff White, Mr Crispin Murray, Mr Paul Brennan, Professor Philip Mitchell, Ms Danae Blundell-Wignall, Mr Tate Dogan. Funds are raised for an endowment that is invested by professional fund managers working on a voluntary basis. Income from the fund is used to sponsor prizes for research, community and school initiatives, in perpetuity, in the area of adolescent depression and suicide. The Anika Foundation provides an opportunity for corporate Australia to make a difference in an area that affects at least 1 in 4 families. All donations are fully tax deductible, and donors are permanently listed on the website. For further details please visit: anikafoundation.com

Anika’s Story

On 17 May 2004 Anika was at home studying for a major mathematics assessment for the HSC to be held the next day. Anika left letters to her parents and friends apologising and explaining to them that she could not cope any more with the pressure of the HSC, along with an issue with a friend. Anika was a top HSC student at SCEGGS Darlinghurst: she won one of the major prizes in the state-wide Intel Science competition in 2002 (third), and her assessments in all subjects were running in the 90’s. Anika had a close supportive family, including an older brother Tate and sister Danae. But Anika suffered from depression. She is no longer here.
