There are three main areas of Catholic health services operating within the Archdiocese of Brisbane.
- Hospital Chaplaincy
Spending time in hospital – whether it be overnight or for a longer period of time – can be an overwhelming and worrying experience. Away from their usual environment, with lots of new information to absorb, many people find they need a little extra support during their hospital stay.
A visit from a chaplain can be an opportunity to make sense of things, by talking through what you are feeling and experiencing with someone who will sit quietly with you and listen without judgement.
Centacare chaplains are located in hospitals across South East Queensland. Patients can request a visit with a chaplain through the hospital’s chaplaincy department or their nurse unit manager.

- Mental Health
In 2021 Centacare embarked on an exciting new beginning for the important services and support for people with a mental illness.
Formerly known as Catholic Psychiatric Pastoral Care, the team at the Mental Health Hub walk alongside clients as they work towards their recovery goals, supporting them to develop and maintain their social and emotional wellbeing.
