About Us

Mental Illness Education ACT (MIEACT) creates a safe space for mental health education in Canberra.
 
Since 1993, we have been the leading local provider of evidence-informed programs to increase mental health literacy, promote early intervention and address stigma. Our programs are designed to empower people to seek help early, should they need it. We bring small audiences in schools, workplaces and online into direct, positive contact with our Volunteer Educators who share their stories of living with a mental illness, drawing on safe language and our best practice approach to communicating about mental health issues – our DoNOHarm Framework.
 
In 2021 alone, MIEACT has supported over 5,000 young people and 5,000 adults to better understand their own mental health, how they manage stress, and how to seek help.


How we will use the funds

The past couple of years have been tough for many of us, and the need to provide effective mental health programs is only becoming greater.

MIEACT is looking for funding to support the continued and expanded delivery of mental health programs to the young people of Canberra. Already partnering with 90% of schools in the ACT, our aim is to reach every secondary student in Canberra with evidence-based, impactful, and empowering mental health programs, including Mental Health and Me, our leading youth program. Mental Health and Me addresses the stigma attached to mental health and uses lived experience stories to promote help seeking for young people. We know that MIEACT programs make a difference in the lives of young people as last year nearly 60% of students who took part in Mental Health and Me said they were significantly or extremely more likely to seek help if they needed it.

Funding will help MIEACT to continue supporting the young people of Canberra, anything you are able to provide would be greatly appreciated.
