Better learning comes from sharing real life experiences with mental illness

Trusted

We have been reducing the stigma and educating the public about mental health since 1993.

Personal

We provide face-to-face contact with volunteers who are living with mental illness.

Effective

Our methods are evidence-based and supported by academic
partners.

Mental Illness Education ACT (MIEACT) has been the leading mental health and well-being education provider servicing the Canberra region for more than 25 years. Using the power of lived experience combined with evidence-based practice, we inform and empower people to sustain their mental health and well-being.

What I liked most about the course was that people shared things they have gone through,
in two different ways, this kept the course interesting and easy to understand.
