Bringing South East Queenslanders together to develop a stronger community

What programs are on offer?

Mental Health Webinars

When it comes to mental health, we all have a role to play in our workplaces, community, and at home. These free bi-monthly webinars are delivered by practicing mental health professionals and will enable you to develop a deeper understanding of mental health and learn to support and empower others around mental health.

Community Education

We offer training and workshops related to mental health early intervention for schools, workplaces, teams, and specialised industry-specific workplace training. Run by qualified and practicing social workers, psychologists, and early intervention specialists across the Greater Brisbane area or online via a live or recorded presentation, these trainings can be tailored to suit your needs and areas of interest.

Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)

Implementation of the Accoras RAP has been a priority for our leadership team. We have developed a working group consisting of passionate Accoras employees and representatives from local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. This initiative outlines our commitments to reconciliation in Australia through relationships, respect, and opportunities.

Building Resilience in Transcultural Australians (BRiTA) Futures

The BRiTA Futures program is designed to focus on healthy multicultural identity development to build resilience to “live in two or multiple worlds”. Working with young people aged 5-18 years as well as adults is lots of fun with a variety of activities aimed at developing skills for navigating life and a deeper connection to their new country, community, and culture.
