iMind Donors make a positive difference

iMind donors

iMind is Mind Australia’s regular giving program which commenced in August 2009. Since then thousands of supporters have made a personal commitment after learning how people’s lives have changed through receiving appropriate services that support them to achieve their aspirations. Whist Mind values government funding, we do require support from the Australian public to fund some independent initiatives that are important to ours client’s recovery.

The generosity of iMind donors enables us to have a regular source of income both now and in the future. Mind can implement long-term initiatives, safe in the knowledge that the funding will be available.

Why should iMind?

  • One in five Australians will experience some form of mental ill-health each year.
  • More Australians die from suicide each year than from road deaths or from skin cancer.
  • It is estimated that 180 Australians attempt suicide every day.
  • 85% of homeless people are estimated to have a mental illness.
  • Mental ill-health is the biggest cause of disability in Australia, costing our economy $20 billion each year.
  • There is evidence that getting help early will assist people in their recovery.
