A private organisation that receives Australian Government and/or State/Territory funding specifically for the provision of community health and related support and information services for people with a mental disorder or psychiatric disability, their carers or the broader community. These include accommodation, advocacy, community awareness, health promotion, counselling, independent living skills, psychosocial, recreation, residential, respite and self-help services.
Mental health funded non-government organisations may also provide other services that are not related to mental health programs or activities, and/or undertake mental health research.
Mental health-funded non-government organisations are usually not-for-profit, but can include for-profit organisations.
