WayAhead – Mental Health Association NSW (WayAhead) plays a vital role in the development of mental health initiatives which increase community awareness and knowledge of mental health issues.
With the support of our Board, staff, members, and volunteers and students, we strive towards a community that embraces and maintains mental, social and emotional wellbeing for all people and we work towards a society free from prejudice and discrimination against people living with mental illness.
