Help us reach every student in the Canberra region.

MIEACT has been the leading mental health and well-being education provider servicing the Canberra region for more than 25 years. Using the power of lived experience combined with evidence-based practice, we inform and empower people to sustain their mental health and well-being. Delivering workshops to over 4,000 secondary students each year across the Canberra region. In addition to our mental health awareness programs we also focus on topics covering stress, body image and provide practical tools to manage, support and practice help seeking behaviours.

In 2017 MIEACT embarked on a project to develop a new program on a topic that is not new to our community, but is recognised as a serious issue across in Australian society - Bullying! Our approach is three pronged to break the cycle of bullying behaviours and developed to reach;

  1. those who are experiencing bullying - what to do and where to go to get help,
  2. those instigating or engaging in bullying behaviour - understanding your actions and how to get support to change behaviour; and, 
  3. those observers of bullying - how to find your voice to speak up against bullying and where to go to get support.

Thanks to The Funding Network, Commonwealth Bank and Hands Across Canberra we have developed the program and can roll out the first 45 workshops.

We have had so much interest in the program that we need your help! Our goal is to raise $50,000 to run an additional 40 workshops.
