Heart Support Australia (HSA) is the peak body supporting regional Australians affected by heart disease. We are a national organisation providing support, encouragement, and education to heart disease patients and their families.

Established in 1989, HSA’s mission is to facilitate the transition from hospital to home and provide ongoing support for heart disease patients in regional Australia. Our goal is to reduce secondary events associated with heart disease and improve the quality-of-life for those living with heart disease.

HSA’s peer support groups have helped thousands of regional Australians achieve improved physical and psychosocial health outcomes over the years. Our groups provide a safe space to receive education, discuss concerns, and increase social connectedness leading to improved physical and psychosocial health. Group activities include patient visitation in hospital, walking and exercise programs, social events and education sessions.

Who we are and how we help

Heart Support-Australia is a non-profit organisation committed to helping individuals and families affected by heart disease.

Through peer support, information, and encouragement, we have been helping people achieve better health outcomes for over 30 years.

As the national consumer peak body for survivors of heart events, we have established local support groups for individuals and families affected by heart disease. These groups meet monthly and are free to all participants. All our members have either survived a heart event, are the carer or family member of a survivor, or have a specific interest in heart health. Together, we work to support all who have been impacted by heart disease. Join us and foster the shared community camaraderie that help survivors strive for optimal health!
