Mental Health Hubs

Mental Health Hubs

Mental Health Hubs make it easier for people with severe mental illness to access integrated clinical and non-clinical care across the North Brisbane and Moreton Bay  region.

Each hub is operated by a different provider with extensive experience in providing services to people with severe and complex mental illnesses.

Mental health hubs offer a range of services: 
  • assessment, triage and intake
  • navigating services
  • coordinating care
  • psychological therapy groups
  • physical health care
  • psychosocial support
  • accessing the NDIS
  • partnering with other service providers (e.g. alcohol and other drug treatment, employment, housing, finance)
  • outreach services.

Eligibility criteria 

  • 18 years and over
  • have a diagnosable or severe and complex mental illness (episodic or persistent)
  • experiencing significant disruption to daily life, wellbeing and functioning
  • unable or unwilling to access NDIS
  • not accessing services through public hospitals
  • in need of clinical support that is not being provided by NDIS or hospital services.

Please note that people who are experiencing acute mental illness should continue to be referred to Metro North Mental Health Services via 1300 MH CALL. 


If you're a loved one of someone who needs support, you can refer them to the mental health hubs as long as you have their consent. Referrals can be made directly with the provider or by contacting the Head to Health Service Navigators 1800 595 212. GPs and other health professionals can refer using the My Mental Health Services eReferral. Further information is available here.

Hubs Evaluation

Hubs Evaluation Report

In 2021, an independent evaluation was completed regarding the Brisbane North mental health Hubs. The purpose of this evaluation was to explore whether this integrated approach improves outcomes for consumers.

The evaluation demonstrated that the Hubs were effective in engaging people living in the community with severe mental illness, led to improvements in psychological distress and recovery outcomes, and met the needs of service users.
