Better recovery pathways for young adults with challenging mental illness and addiction


If you presently, or intend to, offer holistic services or activities to clients to improve their wellbeing and are interested in expanding your offering to other young adults (aged 18-27 years old) with a lived experience of mental illness and addiction, MindFx wants to hear from you. Our focus is about coordinating best practice holistic service providers for clients in a central location. The aim is to return clients to a full and productive life sooner rather than later. Our centre also offers career, vocation and social enterprise development services designed to support young adults with a lived experience of mental illness in transitioning to a full and productive life.

Clients will be supported to develop individual recovery plans with the assistance of their Getting Well Coach, who will be the liaison between MindFx and clinical providers such as General Practitioners, Psychiatrists, Specialists etc.

Clients have access to a range of tailored activities and therapeutic services which will be brokered.  Service providers will pay MindFx a charge and will primarily deliver the services at the MindFx Centre.

  • Acupuncture, kinesiology, ayurveda, tai chi, yoga, meditation, nutrition, psychosocial therapies, psychodrama, energy healing
