Why Mind Connections Foundation? 

In line with the mission, the MCF will actively promote mental health through research activities in Western Sydney University’s (WSU) MD curriculum. Mind Connections Specialist Health Services supports MCF as an in-kind and financial donor.

 

The Foundation’s activities are supported by the generous contributions of our donors and benefactors. Mind Connections Specialist Health Services supports some of the operational costs including an annual mental health award to medical student at WSU, administrative support, and office facilities.

 

The Foundation is currently actively expanding the range of activities it supports. Please talk with us about forming new partnerships, projects and grants programs.
