Become a Peer Ambassador

SANE Peer Ambassadors work with us to raise awareness, reduce stigma and provide hope to Australians affected by complex mental illness.

Who can be a SANE Peer Ambassador?

Peer Ambassadors are either:

  • People with their own lived experience of complex mental illness
  • Families, friends, carers, partners and colleagues, who support someone affected by mental illness.
