Why Open Minds?

Open Minds started out in Brisbane in 1912 as the Queensland Wattle Day League, and over the years has transitioned from funding art scholarships, to helping returned servicemen after the war, to present day - working with people with mental illnesses and disabilities. 

Over the years we have grown with the ever changing needs of the community, and we pride ourselves on providing high quality and reliable services.  

As a registered NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) provider, we supported the first ever Queenslander to get an approved NDIS plan, and we have a proven track record in helping people through the NDIS planning process.

Our clients - living the life they want!


“Don's got a great life, and great people looking after him, and the family really appreciate that. Being able to now talk to Don and knowing that he understands and that you can now get a response back is really good.” – Rod Anderson, brother of Open Minds client, Don.

"Since I've been on the program I don't think I've been in hospital since then. Nobody wants to be in hospital. Without the groups and without Open Minds, I don't know where I'd be to be honest." - Craig, client of Open Minds.
