Our Story

From little things, big things grow

Susan and Macca saw a need for an innovative mental health support service that would be different from any other. They were unsure of what this would look like, but they leapt into the unknown with the thought that “build it and they will come.” So in March of 2020, that’s exactly what they did. Macca, a tradie, and Susan—who had worked in real estate—unknowingly transformed what once was a rundown house into the empire we now know as Compass House and has now expanded into Compass Hub which opened late in 2023.

At Compass House, we believe that every person’s journey is unique and just like the compass, there is no wrong way when it is forward. We work with you to support and encourage as you choose your life’s direction towards better mental wellness, even if it takes many tries. The Compass’s colours represent the fact that mental health affects people of all races, religions, and socioeconomic backgrounds. We welcome everyone regardless of where they come from.
