Mental Health Australia members share our vision for a mentally healthy nation where the wellbeing of all Australians is protected and enhanced by strong service systems and social attitudes that promote recovery. 

Our membership brings together a diverse range of organisations from across Australia to be a strong voice on mental health reform and stigma reduction. 

Membership of Mental Health Australia is available in 2 categories:

National mental health organisations (Voting)

Non-national organisations with an interest in mental health (Non-Voting)


Voting membership is for organisations operating in at least 4 states or territories with a primary mission, purpose or interest in mental health.

Alternatively, an organisation whose work is considered to have a significant impact at a national level may also be eligible to be a Voting Member.

Voting membership application


Non-voting membership of Mental Health Australia is for mental health organisations operating in at least 1 Australian state or territory.

Organisations with a primary focus on other areas of social services or welfare with a peripheral interest in mental health can also apply for Non-Voting Membership.
