The Cairnmillar Institute is a not for profit organisation, and all profits are directed to our low cost counselling services for socially disadvantaged children, adolescents and adults.

The Cairnmillar Foundation actively promotes a positive culture of caring for the mental health of the Victorian community. Through the Foundation, you will be able to provide much-valued financial support to the Cairnmillar Institute through a number of initiatives.

The Cairnmillar Institute gratefully accepts donations to continue our mental health work in the community. Recent examples of donations have led to:

  • Low cost gambling intervention program.
  • Free support services in family and child domestic violence. 
  • Access to low cost and free counselling sessions (The Cairnmillar Trust). 
  • Student scholarships.
  • Free ongoing training and support to childcare educators.
