What is Finding North?

Finding North is a place where people across Australia can find hope, it’s not only a website but a tool created to guide people during their journey with the mental health system.

Finding North is an initiative of and proudly supported by Mental Illness Fellowship of Australia (MIFA).

Finding North is for anyone who would like help navigating their way through the mental health system. Whether you are experiencing mental ill health for the first time, have been living with a mental health condition for decades, or are caring for a loved one and seeking answers about how best to support them.

Our hope is that you feel welcome, understood, and supported while you are seeking to understand what you or the person you care about is going through and what options are available.
