Referring a family or friend

If you’re a health professional working with a mental health or AOD family or friend and believe they could benefit from engaging with us, please get in touch. We welcome new mental health and AOD families and friends.

Our programs are free to family members and friends that support someone with mental ill health and/or AOD use.

Safe Spaces Peer Support Program sessions are a great, soft-entry peer support group for families and friends looking for a connection with other people who get the ups and downs of the support role. You may also let them know about joining our online SANE Chat Forum community.

We also run educational sessions called Conversations with Families and Friends, where we invite health professionals to speak to participants, with the opportunity for Q and A.

Or you might be working with a mental health and/or AOD family or friend who wants to lend their lived experience voice to improving systems, policies, and more. You can read more about our Family and Friend Representative Program here.
