Your mental health hub

The Living and Learning Centre offers a range of wellbeing services for people with severe mental health concerns living in the North Brisbane and Pine Rivers areas.

Through one-on-one and group sessions we integrate mental health and wellbeing coaching with access to psychosocial and clinical support.

Support can help with the practical help with daily living, looking after your health, finding a home, gaining employment as well as improving your connections with family, friends and the community.
