For more than 20 years, MIEACT has delivered evidence-informed programs, partnered with lived experience stories that increase mental health literacy, promote early intervention, reduce stigma and emphasise recovery.
What makes MIEACT unique is that we bring small audiences into direct positive contact with our Volunteer Educators who share their stories of living with a mental illness. Such face-to-face contact is a proven, powerful stigma reduction model, importantly guided by a safe and non-triggering DoNOHarm framework (c) for both story-teller and viewer. This is further partnered with qualified trainers and educational content mapped to The Australian Curriculum.
In addition to our overarching mental health workshops, our programs cover topics including stress, body image, PTSD, bullying prevention, communicating and hearing stories safely, and we ensure participants leave not only with an increased knowledge of mental health, but practical tools to manage, support and practice positive help seeking behaviours.
People are empowered through education to sustain mental health and wellbeing.
