UpBeat Health & Wellbeing is a proud Aboriginal, neurodiverse, and female owned and operated mental health and well-being organization, located in the northern suburbs of Naarm.
Upbeat is fiercely passionate about promoting, celebrating and integrating an intersectional feminist lens into our practice, coming from this perspective affords a space that hold multiple truths, which include an array of realities that are inherently invested in social justice, holistic wellbeing and creative change.
Upbeat would like to acknowledge that we live and thrive upon the stolen lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, the traditional custodians of this country – Narrm. UpBeat pays deep reverence to all Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders, and furthers that respect to Elders past, present, and emerging. We honour first nation people’s strength, resilience, cultural heritage, beliefs, and relationship with the land and recognize that sovereignty has never been ceded.
Upbeat acknowledges that we have a long way to go in order to heal country.
What makes UpBeat truly meaningful is the involvement that our Wellbeing workers offer at the ground level. Our team participates in the daily operations alongside our client’s to ensure that their social, psychological, spiritual, emotional and physical needs are met, supported and understood by both the client and carer alike.
