Our Vision is to address stigma so people are empowered to sustain their mental health and well-being.As a recovery driven organisation, we embrace lived experience to provide mental health education awareness programs in schools and the community to address stigma, increase knowledge and promote help seeking.

Mental Illness Education ACT (MIEACT) creates a safe space for mental health education for all Canberra.
Since 1993, we have been the leading local provider of evidence-informed programs, partnered with lived experience stories, increasing mental health literacy, promoting early intervention and addressing stigma to empower people to seek help early, should they need it.

What makes MIEACT unique is that we bring small audiences into direct positive contact with our Volunteer Educators who share their stories of living with a mental illness guided by our DoNOHarm Framework (c), a best practice approach to communicating about mental health issues.
