We’re a non-government, not-for-profit organisation run by a team of passionate people focused on the rights and experiences of support people (mental health and AOD families and friends). We do this by creating programs and surveys to capture your experience. Everything we do at MHFFTas is informed by the lived experience of support people.
We advocate reducing stigma for mental health and AOD families and friends. We advocate for your rights to be understood, heard, and validated. We do this through education, group support programs, and information and referral help.
