Mental health, alcohol and other drug and suicide prevention services

Brisbane North PHN works with local communities, consumers, carers, health professionals, hospitals and community mental health providers to design local solutions to meet local needs, via our joint regional plan 'Planning for Wellbeing'.

Brisbane North Safe Spaces provides people experiencing emotional distress, friendly and welcoming support, in a safe environment, as an alternative to emergency departments.

Safe Spaces open from 5.00 pm – 9.00 pm on weekdays and participate in a coordinated calendar of opening hours amongst the four spaces, over the weekends.

Safe Spaces evaluation and quarterly reports

Brisbane North PHN has engaged Nous Group to conduct a three-year evaluation to monitor, measure and report on outputs, outcomes, impacts and opportunities for improvement of Brisbane North PHN’s Safe Spaces program.

The Safe Spaces evaluation report (April 2023) and the Safe Spaces quarterly report (July 2023) are now available to download. These report presents early insights from the pilot informed by stakeholder engagement, key program documentation and quantitative service data.
