It is a safe environment to provide equity, connection and support. It is a space for networking collaboratively with Mental Health Peer Support workers, Peer Support volunteers and students. To actively engage and promote the Peer Support framework. Our purpose is to share information, hope, and to discuss how to reduce isolation, stigma and how to work towards sustaining the integrity of the future of Mental Health Peer Support.
Historically Community Focus has accomplished remarkable outcomes over its 20 plus year foundation. We suspect we are the oldest Mental Health/Psychosocial Peer organisation in Queensland utilising a community development approach to empower and strengthen our Peer community. Our organization is committed to encouraging cooperative practice, to embrace the diversity of our community. Embracing interaction between individuals “peers”, constitutes a community within itself, from which access to other communities is made safer, and more possible.
Some of the programs and activities we provide
In addition to the above activities, which developed during the past year, the organisation continues to present the programs that have achieved positive outcomes and are consistently in demand from participants and the community. We are eagerly looking forward to 2018 and the opportunities and challenges that it presents.
