Tuart Place offers a full suite of programs to support your mental health and wellbeing.

Support groups

Tuart Place holds relaxed, informal support groups every week on a Wednesday morning, 10.30am – 12pm.

You don’t need to book in, just turn up on a Wednesday morning and stay on for a casual lunch (provided free).

We also offer special short courses and one-off sessions on a regular basis, covering topics such as healing childhood pain; coping with anger and stress; dealing with depression; developing self-confidence; assertiveness and communication skills.

If you have any topics you’d like to see covered, we would love to hear from you.

Coming to the group has helped me understand that I’m not alone and that I and many other children missed out on schooling and belonging to a family. I understand now how this has affected my life and that I wasn’t to blame. I’m starting to mix and communicate with others. My life has improved immensely.
