Wesley Mission Queensland’s Wellbeing Mental Health Service supports people in the Brisbane south region who are currently experiencing, or are caring for someone who is experiencing distress, anxiety or other generalised mental health concerns.
The Wellbeing Mental Health Service provides short-term therapeutic support in line with individual goals. This may include sessions providing peer support, coaching, education and assistance with developing practical supports and life skills.
There is no cost involved for using the service and no formal referral process needed. The service accepts self-referrals and referrals from professionals (with consent from the individual).
The program may benefit those:
- seeking support to manage stress and anxiety
- needing support for grief, trauma or loss
- wanting help build self-confidence and coping skills
- wanting to discuss addressing issues with alcohol and other drugs, gambling, or other addictions
- experiencing a domestic family violence situation.
The Wellbeing Mental Health Service is a Brisbane South PHN commissioned mental health service all of which share a common set of core principles: compassionate practice, human rights focus, consumer defined and supporter empowering, equity of access and cultural respect and capability. These principles focus on the person at the centre, surrounded by natural and broader community supports. More information about Brisbane South PHN commissioned services can be found here
This program is supported by funding from the Australian Government through Brisbane South PHN.
