Note: Most Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities prefer to define mental health as social and emotional wellbeing (SEWB). Respectfully, the program references both terms.

 

  • Empower peer Support Groups to achieve positive mental health/social and emotional wellbeing outcomes for their members
  • Contribute to the prevention of mental distress and/or illness, and the recovery of mental health/social and emotional wellbeing for peer Support Group members, families and/or carers
  • Further peer Support Groups’ mental health/social and emotional wellbeing supports to their members
  • Promote good mental health/social and emotional wellbeing
  • Encourage peer Support Groups’ mission, governance, and sustainability

The current round of Pay it Forward has now closed.
