Mental Health Services for Inner and West Brisbane
Communify’s Mental Health Service Hub provides integrated clinical and non-clinical services for people living with severe and complex mental illness.
The Recovery and Discovery Centre program is designed to work for a broad range of people but is especially designed to suit people who aren’t receiving mental health supports elsewhere. We welcome a conversation to see if what we offer might be right for you.
The program is for people who are 18 years or over, have a diagnosable severe and complex mental illness (episodic or persistent) and are experiencing significant challenges with daily life, wellbeing and functioning.
We work with people who live in the Inner North or West of Brisbane (Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital catchment). People who are outside of this catchment area can contact the My Mental Health Service Navigation Team on 1800 752 235 to find local supports.
How we can support you
We work alongside you to design a recovery plan to meet your personal goals. This may include one on one support or group activities that can help you understand and manage your mental illness and improve your health and wellbeing.
We also can provide assistance to access other services, help you to get you back to work or undertake training/volunteering and we can work with you to create pathways to reconnecting with old friends or developing new friendships.
It’s all about supporting you to live your best life. If you are an NDIS participant talk to us as you may be eligible for some Communify services.
We provide a range of services and supports including
Our Social Workers and Mental Health Support Workers provide a range of non-clinical, community based support services. These supports can be individual or within a group and use a trauma-informed, recovery orientated approach to support goal-setting and working towards independence.
Access to a range of specialist health and wellbeing programs, alcohol and other drugs recovery, and programs tailored to specific mental health concerns and wellbeing goals.
Mental Health Nursing (Clinical Care Coordination)
Mental Health Nurses liaise effectively with a range of health care providers, provide information and education on mental health maintenance and restoration and can support to coordinate both physical and mental health care needs.
How much will it cost?
The Mental Health Hub program is FREE for most people. Some activities may have a small out of pocket cost. For example, an art therapy group might have a small cost for art materials.
