Mental health support in the community

Hive provides individual and group support to people to improve their mental well-being and connections with the community.

We aim to provide an easily accessible and safe space for people to reconnect, learn new skills, develop healthy routines, and share lived experiences.

We support people, and their carers, to improve their mental health by:

Connecting people with appropriate supports through referral and advocacy.

Developing improved self-esteem and self-confidence to build resilience and empowering people to maintain their well-being.

Strengthening people’s individual networks to increase their knowledge, to adapt and learn new skills and share lived experiences.

Supporting people to identify their own strengths.

Developing and practising skills that support well-being and developing healthy routines.

Providing social opportunities and skills building to connect people with the community.

Offering opportunities to volunteer and build capacity to volunteer in the community.

HIVE activities

Hive at Geelong

It is with regret that we have to let you know our Hive at Geelong service closed on 19 May 2023.

A recent change in government funding arrangements means that we are unable to continue the service. Referrals are no longer being accepted and existing participants have been notified.

We are aware of the impact this closure will have on both the people who access the programs at Hive at Geelong and on our team. We are working together with participants over the next month to adjust to this change and ensure that they are linked with appropriate supports and services.

For anyone wanting to access community mental health support in the Geelong area, the Geelong and Queenscliff Mental Health and Wellbeing Local helps you obtain mental health and wellbeing support when you need it, where you need it.

The Local is located at 12-14 Thompson Road, North Geelong. It provides services that are:
Free (no Medicare card or mental health plan needed)
