Corporate Citizenship

delivering excellence, case by case

Mental Illness Fellowship of Australia (MIFA) works with people affected by severe and persistent mental illness, their families, friends and other networks to deliver effective, quality support. MIFA advocates for positive changes in all areas of social and public policy that impacts on the quality of life for those experiencing mental illness.
