Invitation to join free Online Peer Support Forums – in partnership with SANE Australia

The SANE Forums are a safe, anonymous online community for people living with mental illness and their families, friends and carers. Thousands of Australians use the Forums everyBanners v27day to support each other and share their experiences.

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.

These partnerships with community mental health organisations are vital for reaching the Forums into metropolitan, regional and rural communities around Australia, asBanners v25well as providing users with diverse expertise, information, resources and referrals. Online integration of the Forums through each partner’s website creates multiple access points into the community, while reducing platform duplication in the sector and building the capacity of each partner organisation to deliver digital mental health services for their participants.
