About us

If you have a mental illness and seek support, the Mental Illness Fellowship of Western Australia (MIFWA) can help. We offer comprehensive information and support services to people with mental illness, their carers, families and friends.

Information hub

We regularly update more than 30 fact sheets about mental illness diagnoses – including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorders, serious depression and anxiety disorders. There is also information about managing mental illness and navigating WA’s legal and health service systems.

Find the right support service

Our Telephone Information & Referral Service operates Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm on 08 9237 8999. We can put you in touch with the right support services for your needs.

Supporting recovery

Our Lorikeet Rehabilitation Centre offers a positive and supportive environment for people with mental illness to work towards better health and recovery. This includes skills training and social and recreational activities

Supporting carers

We understand that mental illness affects both the individual and those close to them. That’s why we offer support to carers and family through our carer education program, Well Ways, which is available in Perth as well as Fremantle and Rockingham/Kwinana, with plans to expand further south, as well as to Mirrabooka, Joondalup, Clarkson and further north.

Community education

We work with individuals, families, carers, community groups, health services and government to promote understanding of mental illness in the community, reduce stigma, and increase awareness of the rights of people with mental illness. We also advocate for meaningful mental health research.

Our Fellowship

We are part of a national alliance of mental health service providers – the Mental Illness Fellowship of Australia (MIFA). MIFA is a not-for-profit, grassroots, self-help, support and advocacy organisation of people with serious mental illnesses, their families and friends.
