SANE Australia

SANE Australia is a national charity that aims to help all Australians affected by mental illness to lead a better life through support, training and education. Colonial has supported SANE by providing funding over a six-year period. Colonial’s funding is applied to scale up the capabilities and national reach of a key community service – the SANE Forums. The Forums are a national initiative that enables Australians affected by mental illness to connect online and to support each other through the provision of two online moderated forums: one for those with Lived Experience and the other for Carers.  Colonial’s funding has enabled the Forum service to reach more users and improve the experience of those users through the provision of ‘live’ 24 hours a day, 7 days a week moderation.
