New ‘Safe Spaces’ open now

New Safe Spaces to support people experiencing emotional distress or suicidal thoughts have opened in the North Brisbane and Moreton Bay region.

A Safe Space is an inclusive, welcoming and supportive environment run by peer workers.

Three Brisbane North Safe Spaces are now open in Bardon, Strathpine and Caboolture, with a fourth Safe Space in Redcliffe to open later in 2022.

Peer workers can offer guests support with:

  • problem solving
  • safety planning
  • connecting with other services that may be able to help
  • guided sensory and calming activities to help self-manage emotionality
  • accessing phone and online supports
