Digital Transformation Helps Reduce Isolation for Those Affected by Mental Illness

Sometime’s the work we do has greater meaning that far exceeds the business value of a contract or completed project.

Today we’re genuinely excited to share with you a successful collaboration with Lithium to design and implement online communities for SANE Australia, a national non-governmental organization (NGO) conducting innovative programs and campaigns to help people affected by mental illness lead a better life.

You can read the press release here. These communities help both those suffering from mental health issues and those caring for them. People are able to talk, hear from others, share ideas, learn from others’ experiences so that they don’t have to feel like they’re going through life alone. For a country as geographically big and expansive as Australia, this really helps reduce the feeling of isolation and remoteness that many people feel.

These communities are hosted across multiple agencies in Australia, fostering an even greater sense of community and offering even more help.
