Providing education and awareness in relation to living with a mental illness.

Mental Illness Education ACT works in the youth, school and community setting to provide education and awareness in relation to living with a mental illness. They use personal stories to demystify mental health problems and to contribute to increasing the likelihood of young people seeking help early. 


2017 Pitch
Funds raised: $28,310

MIEACT pitched at TFN Canberra on 21 September and raised $28,310 to develop and begin to deliver a bullying prevention program, that not only provides support to victims of bullying, but also develops strong social networks to better prevent bullying in the first instance, while also encouraging initiators of bullying behaviour to seek support to begin to address the root causes of their own actions.
