* We are currently experiencing increased demand for our services and things are taking a little longer than usual.
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.
SANE services are accredited against the National Safety and Quality Digital Mental Health Standards (NSQDMH).
We offer different types and levels of support. Choose from counselling, peer support, online groups and events, 24/7 community forums, and online information and resources. SANE services are not designed for acute mental health crises. If you or someone you know is at immediate risk, call 000 or visit your nearest hospital. For support with suicidal thoughts, please contact Lifeline on 13 11 14 or the Suicide Call Back Service on 1300 659 467.
Lived experience runs through every level of our organisation, and our safe and inclusive services have been designed and informed by people living with complex mental health needs - people like you. You can feel comfortable reaching out to SANE for support.
Choose from a range of support services, including counselling, peer support, online groups and events, 24/7 community forums, and online information and resources.
To better meet the needs of our callers, we have made an adjustment to our support line hours from Monday 19 June. This change has been informed by caller demand and will enable us to deliver quality support when it is needed the most. If you would like to provide feedback about this change, you can do so here.
If you sometimes struggle to say it out loud, or tell someone in person – try reaching out for support here: it’s anonymous, safe and supportive.
SANE services are not designed for crisis support. If you require immediate support, please contact one of the service providers below.
