About this activity...
MIFWA started from a true need, a grassroots organisation that grew with the needs of the people. We haven't lost that vision, and the values that we live and breath and taking the time with people to understand them, and follow through consistently.
We assist around 2,000 people every year
We exist to champion and support people who have experienced mental illness, and their families and carers. We were established by families and individuals with lived experience, driven by hope, to find a way for people diagnosed with mental illness to reconnect with their life and community.
We are a community mental health provider. We are here for people and/or families experiencing a serious mental illness. We are a small team of experienced and dedicated people who understand, offers information and practical support.
We are not clinical or medical (at times we compliment this aspect of people’s care/treatment), rather we focus on supporting people to get on with their life, goals and aspirations. We know that people do much better when they are active, contributing and have opportunities to participate, learn and develop.
We were founded by families who wanted more for their family members than clinical and medical treatment could offer.
