Better learning comes from sharing real life experiences with mental illness


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


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


Our methods are evidence-based and supported by academic

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.
