Our new website is under construction and will be launching soon!

The O’Brien Centre was established in December 1998 through a partnership between consumers and the former Mid Western Area Health Service (MWAHS).
We provide a safe environment where people with a mental illness have the opportunity to develop friendships, gain social and work skills, advocate for their issues and work to overcome stigma around mental illness. The former MWAHS donated land and several large sheds on the grounds of Bloomfield Hospital which MWCAG volunteers developed over the years, creating a centre which could accommodate a extensive diverse range of activities and programs.
