Healthy Minds is a program for people from 18 to 64 living with severe and persistent mental illness. It provides one-on-one services, peer support and self-help groups, and group outings and activities.
The program also supports families and carers of people with mental illness.
What you do while you’re working with Healthy Minds varies from person to person. When you first get involved we’ll work together to map out a plan for your recovery based around your priorities, values and goals, and what a fulfilling, meaningful life looks like to you.
If you choose, your family or carer can also be involved in making your plan.
Some of the things you plan might cover include:
- Taking care of yourself, and maintaining your physical and mental health
- Looking after your relationships with family and friends
- Being a part of your community
- Dealing with setbacks and challenges
Healthy Minds is available in communities across Central Queensland, including Rockhampton, Gladstone, Emerald, Longreach, Biloela and smaller communities around those centres. You do not need a referral, and all services are free.
