MIFA Common Focus

As a group of long-standing membership based organisations, we currently support over 20,000 people across Australia. We are building a national network that delivers local solutions based on our common strengths.

About Us

  • We know from experience that recovery of a better quality of life is possible for everyone affected by mental illness

  • We work with and alongside participants and members of our organisations in every program, whether as staff, managers, peers, volunteers or board members

  • Peers—consumers, carers, families, friends—are at the heart of all our program design, governance, delivery and evaluation—and our services are better for that

  • We work closely with families, carers and friends as well as the person with a mental illness, including those who are hard to reach

  • Our objectives are holistic -- we work to assist individuals and families in their journey to recover mental health, physical health, social connectedness and equal opportunity in all aspects of life.

  • We educate and advocate to help build a community where people with mental illness are accepted and valued, and where carers are supported and validated

  • Our national federation strengthens all of us in our efforts to be innovative and reflective in all of our practices -- and to become well-enough known to ensure no-one misses out on available help

  • We give priority to persuading funders, policy makers, politicians and potential corporate sponsors to invest in community resources which reflect these common strengths

  • We don’t do it all, nor do we want to – our collaborations with other service providers ensure that our front doors will always lead to the best local services
