Sarah found out about SANE Australia three months after her brother Ben died. Finding out after Ben’s tragic death that there are in fact services and charities available to provide help to families, carers and individuals who suffer from mental illness propelled Sarah into action. Ten years later she is still actively promoting SANE Australia, in the hope that other families do not go through their experiences surrounding mental illness alone.
SANE Australia is a proactive and supportive national charity that assists people impacted on by mental illness. Frequently SANE receives feedback from Australians who have benefited from their support and services, clearly indicating their quality of life has been improved as a result.
