Welcome to our online community – a virtual gathering place to connect and collaborate, stay up to date on what we are doing and access mental health, alcohol and other drugs support services. You can join the conversations through forums, polls, idea walls and feedback forms.
To help shape the health and wellbeing future of Gladstone, we encourage all community members to participate in our consultation and collaboration opportunities. We want to hear from you. Register now!
This week we held our Qld Mental Health Week event - Community Connect. 15 service providers / community groups came together to provide a wonderful day filled with connection, promotion of improved mental health and wellbeing, celebration of recovery journeys and fun.
We are keen to hear your thoughts on what activities you would like to see offered at the Gladstone Mindcare Hub for you to participate in. Do you like arts and crafts, connecting over a BBQ, playing boardgames - we are open to all ideas!
Scroll to the bottom of this page and submit your ideas on our Idea Wall or send us a message.
This week we welcome our new co-locating partner - Centre for Play Therapy. Centre for Play Therapy provides child-centred counselling services to children and young people between the ages of 2-12 years and is committed to 'helping children heal through play'. We are thrilled to see this extra support for young children available in the Gladstone region. You can find out more about Centre for Play Therapy and our other co-locating partners here.
The Gladstone Mindcare Hub was officially launched this week. We celebrated this milestone with our supporters and service providers, showing them around and recognising their valuable contributions to making the Gladstone Mindcare Hub possible.
We are excited to launch our new website. But this is not just any website, it’s an online community where the residents of Gladstone can engage with us and each other, become Changemakers by getting involved in our work to improve mental health, alcohol and other drugs for our region and obtain information, advice and referral to support. Explore our site, register and get involved!
We are excited to announce that refurbishment works have commenced to fit out the Gladstone Mindcare Hub in preparation to open to the Gladstone community. Following community consultation and planning, these works will see the building transform into a safe and inclusive community centre with space for social connection and health promotion activities, installation of Disability accessible amenities and consult rooms and offices.
Our first Working Bee was held on Saturday, 10 October 2020 with 31 people coming to volunteer their time, effort and energy. It was a wonderful, family oriented day where we worked together to make the Gladstone Mindcare Hub beautiful. We are so very grateful for the help and support and look forward to continuing to work together to improve the mental health and wellbeing of the Gladstone community.
We will be holding further Working Bees in the near future and welcome anyone who would like to lend a hand to make this community space a place where everyone contributes, matters and belongs.
Gladstone Mindcare serves the Gladstone community as an integrated gateway for information, advice and referrals for people needing mental health and/or alcohol and drug support. We help link people with the services and supports that are right for them.
As a collective impact initiative, we bring together data, research, government, non-government organisations and community to work collaboratively on initiatives that empower the Gladstone community to achieve measurable improvements in wellbeing for the Gladstone community. For more information on collective impact and our work in this space, please access our Collective Action Social Impact page.
