Australians with lived experience or caring for someone with a mental illness can now connect and share experiences in a safe online community.

In partnership with SANE Australia, our website now offers two forums, one for carers and another for people with lived experience. The forums provide a peer-to-peer service. It’s a space where carers and people living with mental illness can link up and share experiences, tips and offer support.

The forums are anonymous and moderated 24/7 to remain safe and welcoming for members of the community aged 18 years and over.

The online forums provide many people who were previously either geographically or socially isolated to come together and create a shared, safe and supportive community.

The SANE Forums are not a crisis or a counselling service, however the moderators will direct you to emergency services if need be.
