Developed and run by volunteers of the Brazilian Community Council of Australia (a.k.a BRACCA), BRACCA MIND was developed due the high demand of people from diverse backgrounds suffering from mental health issues, specifically young immigrants and international students living in Australia.

We have witnessed a growing number of suicides, domestic violence, psychological abuse, and a huge wave of we have of people in the community suffering from mental health issues. With this awareness, BRACCA Mind, as the official representative of the Brazilian community in Australia took the lead to bring our society together and fight for these causes.

We need your support

We know that it is impossible to achieve the desired result if we don’t work together, the help of some important channels of our society, such as NFP institutions, religious groups, Government, schools and agencies are extremely important to effectively make some changes in this terrifying scenario. 

BRACCA MIND is a non-for-profit program and doesn't receive any funds from any institution or government. 

We are now at the second stage of the program and we need to join forces to help all these people needing psychological assistance. We have more than 200 people waiting to be reached for the second stage of the program, including  people at risk.

Right now, we are counting with the kind support of volunteers psychologists of Bilibio Psychology - Bpsych Clinic, but the program goes beyond only psychological consultation, many vital activities are part of the project such as, specific support for  the LGBTQ+ community, support groups, social events, workshops and mental health psychoeducation materials.
 
We would really appreciate your assistance in helping us execute this project.
 
 
THANK YOU!
