Capril is about raising awareness of depression and removing the social stigmas attached to it.  To that end we encourage you to hold a Capril event in your workplace, school or community.

For Australian events, email Angus at outlining the Capril event you would like to hold, or Alex Watson at outlining the UK event you want to hold. They will guide you through your event and let you know if it is appropriate (some charities have strict fundraising guidelines that have to be followed).

Schools are also welcome to run cape wearing days and contact Angus for Capril school event details at if you’re in Australia or Alex Watson at if you’re in the UK.

If you request help with a Capril event, please include your name, address, date of the event and where it will be held.  The address should be an address that we can get information packs delivered to you from our supported charities.

To understand your obligations and what kind of events are acceptable, please download our fundraising guidelines here, <comming soon>.

Can’t decide on a cape to wear? Try buying a Capril T-Shirt on-line instead, problem solved.

Stuck for an event idea?

If you’re holding one at a school, why not have a cape wearing day, and organise someone to speak to the students about depression.  It is also a great idea to involve parents as well.  We can order wrist bands, temporary tattoos and youth information packs to help you talk about depression and the support available for those who need help dealing with it.

If you’re in an office environment, why not have a cape wearing day and take a group photo to hang up on the wall?

If you just want to do something low key, why not organise a morning tea with your friends?  Have everyone turn up in capes and collect money to donate to beyondblue: the national depression and anxiety initiative.

You are only limited by your imagination!

Promoting your Event

You can obtain beyondblue: the national depression and anxiety initiative material from their website at and you can ask Angus,, for a PDF copy of the A4 Poster you can print for display at your event.
