Committed to providing exceptional healthcare to young people

The Mater Young Adult Health Centre Brisbane is a specialised service providing adolescents and young adults with high quality care, as well as uniquely tailored programs that address their emotional, social and developmental needs.

The centre delivers support across a wide range of specialities and can respond to the complex healthcare needs of young people.

The care provided at Mater Young Adult Health Centre Brisbane is an evidenced based model that has been uniquely designed with adolescents and young adults in mind. Our holistic, inclusive approach allows young adult patients to access to a range of health professionals who work together to care for the patient as a team.

We recognise that it is important for young adults to be cared for with people their own age so they can share their experiences with a peer, and that being able to interact with someone else their age normalises their experience and helps them process what they’re going through.

What we do

The Mater Young Adult Health Care Centre Brisbane provides inpatient services for young people in hospital, access to specialist health clinics, professional emotional health support, as well as free, confidential services for young people who experience issues with substance use.
