Mental Health Foundation ACT

For nearly 40 years, MHF(ACT) has been the leading provider of supports for people with psychosocial disability in the ACT. We specialise in supporting people on their recovery journey from mental illness. Our employees have a lived or learnt experience of mental illness, which informs them in their support of you.

Recovery Coaching and Support Coordination - Through lived or learnt experience we will assist you to access support, utilise your NDIS plan and support you to live a meaningful life, relevant to your goals. Youth Transition to Adulthood - Through facilitating Rites of Passage camps, we support, recognise and honour teenagers in their transition to adulthood. Transition to Home - We provide support to patients discharged from acute mental health services to find suitable long term accommodation and community supports.
