Mental health support

Find a mental health service

No matter what you’re going through, there’s an avenue of support that’s right for you.

If you live in North Brisbane, Moreton Bay or parts of the Somerset region, you can access mental health support through a range of providers including primary health care and community services.

Your front-line health professionals, or what we call primary health care providers, include GPs, nurses, pharmacists and other allied health professionals like psychologists and psychiatrists.

You can also access other community mental health services that provide a range of additional support, including one-on-one or group programs and activities.

Many community services also offer information and referral, personalised support, and coordinating care.

The following pages provide information, links and referral information to various mental health services in the PHN region.
