We are incredibly grateful to the many individuals, families and organisations who already so generously support us in helping over 12,000 people every year. 

But, with one-in-five Australians now experiencing mental health problems, we want to do more.

To do more, we need your help.  

There are so many ways you can help - whether it's through donation or volunteering, you can make a difference.

Donations go towards:

The Mind Scholarship Program

Between the ages of 15 and 20, young people are laying the foundations for their adult lives. It’s a time of hope. Unfortunately, it’s also the time when many people first experience mental illness, disrupting their education and affecting their future. For those people, it can be a time of lost hope.

We set up the Mind Scholarship Program to give people a chance, to enable them to start – or continue – their studies.

We give up to $1,500 per individual for study-related expenses such as fees and books. Our program helps people get their life back on track and reclaim their hopes.

Research

Research is vital. It helps us to find out what works and develop the services that people need. At Mind, we’re serious about research, and we involve individuals, families and carers, as well as other mental health service providers and universities. The more research we do, the more useful we are. Learn more about our research.

Who doesn’t want to be a hero? Our page on the Everyday Hero website makes it easy, and you don’t even have to wear tights and a cape – though you can if you want to. Registering your fundraising event on the site makes it easy to keep track of how much you’re raising and to share your page with friends and family. Come on now, don’t be shy. Be a hero and make sure everybody knows about it at Mind's Everyday Hero charity page.
