Who We Are
As many as 1 in 5 of us will experience some form of mental illness in our lifetime.
Since 1985, we have been committed to providing a personalised response to the needs of people living with mental illness, their families, friends and carers.
We currently work in five Queensland regions – Brisbane, Gladstone, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Toowoomba, providing individual, carer and group support programs, education and training, and information and referral. Programs are targeted to respond to the needs of each region and are based on our core beliefs, values and attitudes.
We are a member of the Mental Illness Fellowship of Australia (MIFA). MIFA is a national organisation undertaking an advocacy role on behalf of its state and territory members. MIFA is committed to ensuring that all Australians affected by mental illness receive adequate services and that policy and legislation address their needs.
We advocate on behalf of people living with mental illness through our newsletter, website and social media, and we raise awareness of their perspective in the general community through promotional events, speaking engagements and presentations.
MENTAL HEALTH IN THE WORKPLACE
On average we spend 30 percent of our lives at work, so creating a workplace that supports mental health and wellbeing makes sense. Your organisation's reputation is paramount and your people are your number one asset.
Most organisations understand the importance of meeting statutory workplace health and safety requirements, however, few really understand the importance and value of supporting the mental health and wellbeing of their people.
Workplace mental health issues are often complex and require more than just a standardised response.
