The Brook RED Centre - Peer Support

Brook RED is a peer run community service providing support  for any individual who has a lived mental health experience.   We use the unique insights and connections that a peer perspective offers, in order to support people in building and defining the life they choose to live.

RED at Brook Street & RED 88

Both centres are open Monday through Friday from 9:30am to 8:00pm. We offer a range of groups, including music groups, health and fitness, men’s and women’s groups, we also run excursions through the day and in the evening we enjoy meals together.  One-on-one peer support is available at both centres, including support around finding employment, finding affordable accommodation and general mental health wellbeing.

RED 88 is located at 88 Norton Street in Upper Mt Gravatt. Contact - 3343 9282
RED at Brook Street is located at 25 Brook Street in Highgate Hill. Contact - 3846 4209

Both Centres now open until 8.00pm at night.

The RED House.

The RED House is an active recovery environment where an individual can find the space, resources and support to address particular barriers or challenges in their life. The RED House allows for a planned stay of up to two weeks.  Guests are able to access support and engage with RED 88, a peer support community, located next door. 

The RED House is staffed with Peer Support workers in the evening and during weekends, allowing the guest additional support and resources, whilst working on their individual plans. RED House is not respite, and as such the RED House cannot  accommodate crisis/emergency stays.

Contact the RED House on 3343 9282, to complete a booking enquiry or for further information.

 

Peer Participation

Brook RED hosted a two day Peer Forum supported by North Brisbane PIR Innovation Fund where we asked you how your voices could be heard to inform the mental health system.
