Mental Health Support QLD for NDIS Participants

Australia’s National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is making it easier for people living with disability and mental illness to access support.

Open Minds works closely with the NDIS to offer our services to people living with asperger’s, autism, PTSD, mental health, psychosocial disability and more. 

NDIS eligibility is assessed based on needs, so we’re able to provide mental health support QLD for people living with a wide range of mental illness and disability, regardless of your diagnosis.

Through the NDIS, we offer funded supports that help increase your capacity, build your independence and allow you to reach your full potential.

Our NDIS supports and Support Coordination services are offered from many of our Queensland locations. Wherever you are, you’ll be able to access mental health support QLD stretching from Townsville down to the Sunshine Coast, Redcliffe, Brisbane and Toowoomba. 

We have health hubs located across the state, and our NDIS mental health supports can give you the freedom to pursue your goals.

Simply talk to us about your needs and we can help you access funding for an NDIS plan that suits your life perfectly.

Counselling and Mental Health Support QLD

All types of mental health conditions can have a big impact on your life. If you’re struggling with things like anxiety or depression, seeking mental health support QLD is one of the best things you can do for your wellbeing.

To support our other services, Open Minds also offers counselling and psychology from our Morayfield Mental Health Hub. Based north of Brisbane, our Morayfield centre gives you access to qualified psychologists and specialists who can help you navigate any challenges you’re experiencing.

Mental health support QLD at our Morayfield location is open to everyone. Regardless of your age, gender or cultural background, our specialists can provide counselling and psychology services to help you live the life you’re envisioning.

We offer counselling and psychology support to all clients, including children, NDIS participants, domestic violence victims, veterans, military personnel and anyone who’s seeking support for a mental illness.

Our counselling and mental health support QLD services are designed to be flexible enough for everyone. Depending on your needs, we’re able to offer appointments with our Morayfield team over the phone via video chat. We also welcome a range of funding sources, including the NDIS, Medicare, WorkCover, DVA and the EAP.

Youth Mental Health Support QLD

At Open Minds, we believe in making mental health support available to everyone, including children and young people.

With more than 75% of mental health issues beginning before the age of 25, we’re committed to helping younger communities through difficult situations.

Whether you’re living with disability or managing a mental illness, Open Minds can help you access support through our headspace centres in:

  • Redcliffe
  • Strathpine
  • Indooroopilly

We’re proud to be taking part in the Government’s headspace initiative.

The program allows us to make mental health support QLD services more affordable and more available to people aged 12 to 25. With our younger communities needing more mental health support than ever, the Open Minds team is ready to make a difference.
