Healthy Minds Geelong's vision is to create a positive culture of mental health across the Geelong region.
The HMG concept was born out of an identified gap in local mental health support services and in particular the need for a dedicated local information hub to help connect the community to local services, navigate the mental health care system and ultimately empower people to look after their mental health.
