We offer a range of support services for people with mental illness, their families and carers in the North Queensland region from Sarina in the South, Mt Isa and the border in the West and the Torres Strait Islands in the North.
If you are experiencing mental illness we can help with your rehabilitation and recovery. If you are caring for a loved one with mental illness you will find the Well Ways program invaluable. We can also help with counselling, support groups and family respite.
At MIFNQ we promote participation of people with a mental illness and their carers as educators and our programs reflect this. We are also committed to educating the broader community about living with mental illness and offer two community education programs.
The Mental Illness Fellowship of Australia is undertaking a project on behalf of Psychosis Australia Trust to enable the views of people affected by psychosis including carers, families and friends to be given the right amount of consideration when establishing an agenda for psychosis research in Australia.

What is psychosis?
Psychosis is a condition where the functioning of a person’s brain is severely disrupted, affecting that person’s thoughts, perceptions, emotions and behaviour. Like any other illness, psychosis is treatable and can happen to anyone. Psychotic symptoms can occur in an isolated episode or as part of an ongoing diagnosed illness such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression or schizoaffective disorder.
