SANE is the leading national mental health organisation for people with complex mental health issues in Australia and for the families and friends that support them.
We’re committed to creating a brighter future for people affected by complex mental health issues by ending mental health inequity and social and economic exclusion.
SANE offers a range of free digital and telehealth support services for people over 18 years of age with complex mental health needs, and their family, friends and carers. We also provide mental health support to people with intellectual disability, autism or acquired brain injury.
We are committed to amplifying the voices of our community. We conduct practical research through our Anne Deveson Research Centre (ADRC) to drive policy change and support greater inclusion for people with complex mental health issues.
Our StigmaWatch program, which has been running since 1997, promotes responsible reporting of mental ill health and suicide in the Australian media by monitoring and responding to reports of inaccurate or inappropriate and stigmatising media portrayals.
SANE offers different types and levels of support, so you can choose the supports that work for you. Choose from counselling, peer support, online groups and events, 24/7 community forums, and online information and resources.
Our mental health support services are accredited against the National Safety and Quality Digital Mental Health Standards (NSQDMH).
