Our online community


These forums allow people with lived experience of distress and/or mental health issues (consumers and/or carers) and our allies to connect and contribute together. This is a place to come together and talk about what matters to us, provides an opportunity to inform our advocacy, peer and leadership efforts as well as share resources for driving systemic change. 

We are the people who speak up and we stand up; or we are working out how to do that in ways that are good for us. We are the changemakers. 


These forums are not focused on providing individual support. The SANE Forums provide a platform for seeking and providing support, asking questions and sharing stories. They have forums for people with lived experience as well as carers.

Co-designing an ED Alternative in the Adelaide CBD

These conversations will support the design of a service and space that will operate as an alternative to how emergency departments are currently accessed by people experiencing mental health crisis and/or distress. This work is a partnership between LELAN and TACSI, on behalf of the OCP. More can be read about the work so far over at www.lelan.org.au/co-creating-ed .
