Who Are The Mental Health Association NSW?

If you have been browsing our site and looking at the downloadable brochures in our suicide prevention section, you may have noticed some links to brochures created by the Mental Health Association NSW. Here is a little bit more about the Association and how they may be able to help you.

Who We Are

The Mental Health Association NSW (MHA NSW) plays a vital role in the development of mental health initiatives which increase community awareness and knowledge of mental health issues.

With the support of our Board, staff, members, and volunteers and students, we work towards a society free from prejudice and discrimination against people living with mental illness.  We strive towards a community that embraces and maintains mental, social and emotional wellbeing for all people.

We do a range of work primarily focused on the provision of mental health information and running anxiety and health promotion programs within NSW, including co-ordinating Mental Health Month NSW. Find out more about our programs and current work.

We are a community-based organisation and registered charity. We are a member of the Mental Health Coordinating Council and the Mental Health Council of Australia. We are also an accredited organisation under the Quality Improvement Council and are part of the Forum of Non Government Agencies (FONGA) and are a signatory to the NSW Community Sector Charter.

MHA’s programs are funded by NSW Health and other agencies, plus private donations and bequests.
