The Recovery and Wellness Program (RWP) is a psychosocial support program that provides psychoeducation and practical interventions to support individuals who reside in boarding houses, supported accommodations, hostels and crisis accommodations. The program offers recovery based support that will increase an individual’s capacity for self-management of lifestyle, and to support individuals in developing their own skills and resources to strengthen their community connections and increase positive relationships. The RWP works in partnership with the Metro North and Metro South Hospital and Health Services. All program participants are referred by clinicians through Queensland Health’s Mental Health Services.

Peer Based Group Support (PBGS) provides therapeutic support through psychosocial and psychoeducational groups facilitated by skilled Lived Experience workers.

PBGS offers a range of groups which explore all parts of wellness and skill-building.

PBGS offers groups for individuals at any stage of their recovery from Chill, Chat & Create where participants have the chance to get to know each other and let their creative side wild to Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, which is a structured program that includes elements of Cognitive Behavioural, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness.

All of our groups are trauma informed, strength based, and client centred. We focus on meeting the client where they are at and walking alongside them providing hope, empathy and encouragement.

If you are a client of RFQ’s Hospital to Home Program or Footprints Recovery and Wellness Program, we would love to invite you to join any of the groups.

For further information about any of our groups, please contact the PBGS Lived Experience Team Leader.
