Formerly Pete’s Place, Mi Place is a drop in centre for people living with a mental illness, located on Bagot Road, Coconut Grove and everyone is welcome to drop in for a cuppa and a chat.

Mi Place is a fun and safe place to socialise and participate in recreational activities. Mi Place has regular guest speakers to provide information on various topics and lunch is available daily. Activity times vary and it is advisable to check our calendar for times. Members are also able to complete a personal development plan with a member of staff to identify and work towards their goals.

Participants are registered members rather than clients whereby each member is a valued and needed contributor. Active membership can provide a sense of fulfilment and belonging, it can also improve your self esteem and social skills and increase your employment skills and connection to the community.

Mi Place does not provide clinical services – members are encouraged and supported to seek treatment from the mental health and medical services in the community.

To participate in our additional programs, becoming a member is free (speak to a staff member).

Hours: Open between 9:30 am - 1pm - Monday to Friday

To ensure members benefit from our services and to assist with catering we request attendence prior to 10am if you intend to stay for lunch
