About Us

Established in Canberra in 2016 This Is My Brave Australia Inc. (TIMBA) is a mental health charity dedicated to promoting a national conversation about mental health in the community and breaking down stigma and discrimination. We conduct activities in the community where people can share or be exposed to stories in a safe and supportive environment. Our activities include our Storytelling Saves Lives , live storytelling events, TIMBA out reach programs, mental health film festival and MHFA courses.

How your donation will help

We want to teach as many Canberrans as possible about Mental Health First Aid.

Your donation will go towards funding subsidised places at our 2023 Mental Health First Aid courses.

1 in 5 Australians will experience a mental health problem in any given year. That means that every person is likely to know someone who is experiencing a mental health problem whether that is a family member, a friend or colleague.

We need more mental health literacy and support skills in the community to help catch more Australians experiencing mental health problems and troubled times.

This is where Mental Health First Aid training can help.

Mental Health First Aid skills based, early-intervention training programs mobilise and empower communities by equipping people with the knowledge and confidence to recognise, connect and respond to someone experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis.
