We are thrilled to announce an exciting new chapter in the history of the Mental Illness Fellowship of South Australia. Welcome to Skylight Mental Health, the new name for MIFSA.
At Skylight it is participants and staff who work together to bring warmth, hope and light. We honour the courage to face the darkness and challenges which mental illness brings, while we also are inspired to look up and out, to see opportunity in building mental health and wellbeing.
At Skylight, people living with mental illness, their family and friends will continue to receive the same support, the same responsive and innovative services and the same community awareness and advocacy that people have come to enjoy and expect from MIFSA.
We are committed to building on our thirty four year legacy and history. The challenges we face as we move to a new era of funding under the NDIS and an increased focus on self-directed supports, calls for a fresh approach.
We will continue to share the journey with our participants, carers and the community and cooperatively, we seek to challenge ourselves and the broader community to see mental health differently and join with us to look past the diagnosis to see the person within.
