The Courage Project

The Courage Project is a collaboration between Bravehearts and Mackay Women’s Services (MWS).

The Courage Project aims to deliver a mental health service to disadvantaged and disengaged children and young people (under the age of 14) who have experienced trauma-related issues.

The Courage Project will provide therapeutic and advocacy supports to children and young people who have experienced, or are at risk of experiencing, physical and/or sexual assault and are at risk of self-harm.

The service is available to clients residing in the Mackay, Whitsunday and Isaac Council Regions and uses evidence-based and trauma-informed approaches to support children and young people in their healing journey.

The multidisciplinary team work with children and young people individually as well as and their non-offending family members and support services.
