SANE Australia is inviting MHCSA members to join this free program, simply by integrating the service into their websites. Currently there are 49 organisations around Australia participating in the program.

First launched in May 2014, SANE is funded through the Australian Government Department of Health to develop and moderate the Forums 24/7 and carries all liability for the service.
