Mental Illness Fellowship Victoria

Our vision is of a society in which mental illness will be understood and accepted.

Mental Illness Fellowship is Victoria's leading membership based not-for-profit organisation
working with people with mental illness, their families and friends to improve their well being. Join us and help to end the stigma.

This year we assisted 3,500 people affected by mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, depression and bipolar disorder who needed specialised assistance to overcome the disabilities these illnesses cause. We also work with their family, friends, carers and employers.

We create pathways for people to connect with education, employment, family and the broader community through our accommodation, rehabilitation, education and support services. We offer an information line, a resource centre, peer support and more.

Supporting MI Fellowship means we can do more work, for more people, more often.
