Mental Health Hubs

Who can access the Mental Health Hubs?

Our Mental Health Hubs offer programs, activities and support to provide an innovative recovery option to individuals in the Townsville and Mackay regions seeking support for mental health conditions.

The Mental Health Hubs have an open door policy, providing safe and welcoming spaces for self-help, advocacy and socialisation. 

Because everyone's journey is different our programs allow you access for as long as you require.

Services are free-of-charge and you do not need a referral.

About the Hubs

The Mental Health Hub offers a structured program with focus on psychoeducation, community connection, and resilience building while promoting social inclusion and healthy relationships.

One of our main aims is to empower individuals to develop a greater sense of control over their mental wellbeing through psychoeducation. In simple terms this means providing education around the mental
health concerns an individual is experiencing to promote a greater understanding of their symptoms, emotions and behaviours.

This can help to remove some of the fear, shame and self-stigma being experienced with regard to an individual’s mental health.

Our programs draw on the knowledge of those with lived experience and include activities to suit a range of needs and interests including health and fitness, life skills, arts and crafts, and more.

The Mental Health Hubs are open to adults seeking support for their mental wellbeing – we accept referrals from all sources – you can even self-refer.

Note programs and activities differ in both locations.
