Free Online Peer Support Forums

The sane forums are a safe, anonymous online community for people living with mental illness and their families, friends and carers. 

SANE Australia is inviting NTMHC members to join this free program, simply by integrating the service into their websites. These partnerships with community mental health organisations are vital for promoting the forums into metropolitan, regional, and rural communities around Australia.


Sane Australia Representation Survey

In 2018 SANE Australia conducted a survey asking Australians how they wanted mental illness to be represented in images. With over 5,000 participants, the majority of those having a lived experience of mental illness, the survey results gave a clear indication of the types of images that contribute to stigma and which images portray a fair and accurate representation of living with a mental illness.
