MIFANT launches 'Person Too' awareness commercial

After months of preparation and planning, Mental Illness Fellowship of Australia NT (MIFANT) has launched its 'Person Too' awareness campaign and TV commercial.

Coinciding with MIFA(NT)'s name change and new location, we thought it would be appropriate to relaunch our brand to the Territory and remind everyone what we do.

With the help of a generous donation from DKJ Architects, and support from Sitzler construction, MIFA(NT) produced a TV commercial aimed at assuring people affected by mental illness are people too. 

The TV commercial is based on the experiences of MIFA(NT) client, David, and carer, Liz, with the celebrity backing of well known identity Ernie Dingo. The wonderful images of David and Liz are courtesy of local photographer Tuan Nguyen.

The TV commercial will be running on channel 9 for a number of weeks and can be viewed below. 


Mental Illness Fellowship of Australia (NT), MIFA(NT) is a non-government organisation providing services for people living with a mental illness and their carer’s and families.
