Our story began in 1983, as the Schizophrenia Fellowship of South Australia. 19 years later we became the Mental Illness Fellowship of South Australia, to better reflect our scope and the needs of South Australians living with mental illness.
In 2006, we merged with the Mood Disorders Association of South Australia – and then, in July of 2017, we introduced a new name for a new era – Skylight Mental Health.
At Skylight, we are inspired by the resilience of the human spirit and the potential in all of us to live well. We create environments of understanding, connection, optimism and courage through:
- individual support
- group activities
- respite and
- community education
We share a journey to empowerment with individuals, their friends and family and their carers.
Discovery through shared learning
Humanity, lived experience, and importance of what happens between people
The hope and belief in possibility and the potential of each person
Resilience, commitment and a strength of spirit
