Staying mentally well in Morayfield

Staying mentally well in Morayfield

If you're feeling overwhelmed or distressed, our qualified professionals can support you to stay mentally well. Our clinicians provide support for people experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, grief or loss, gender or sexual identity issues, self harm or suicidal thoughts, and much more.

The Open Minds Mental Heath Hub at Morayfield provides psychology and counselling services for people experiencing a wide variety of mental health concerns. 

These services can be in the form of one-on-one sessions or group programs, and can be accessed through a range of funding options including Medicare, WorkCover, EAP, DVA and NDIS. You do not need a referral to access support.

Based in the new Morayfield Health Hub, you can benefit from the integrated health care available here including GPs, X-Ray, Minor accident and illness, as well as free parking and child care.

As we've had some friendly new faces join us recently, here's your chance to meet the team who work to keep Morayfield mentally well.
