To our community

We are grateful for your support and contribution to our community of People Like Us. We feel privileged to have had the opportunity to give back to our community, to share our knowledge and connect People Like Us. We are pleased that there are now many other organisations that fill the gap that dNet once filled alone. We are encouraged that mental health and wellbeing is on the agenda, that stigma is slowly being torn down, and that there is so much conversation around empowerment and resilience. We thank the organisations that aligned and complemented our strategies and goals to empower people like us, Australians living with depression, to find solutions to the challenges of living with depression. We hope that you feel the opportunities for the future of mental wellbeing and wish you well on your journey.

To our donors

If you were a financial donor, thank you for your donations over the last few years. It helped us keep the lights on, and to try to push forward with our model of peer support - a service for people like us, by people like us.

We want you to know that our remaining funds have been donated to Mental Health First Aid.
