YOUR 3rd PLACE (opening mid to late 2022)
Choose Thrive is in the process of planning for the setup of YOUR THIRD PLACE – a Mental Health & Wellbeing Café. The Café will be a community space, with the purpose of supporting youth and young adults.

DURING THE DAY - Operating as a community café, you people will be able to make appointments to meet with a Mental Health & Wellbeing Team Member, access a range of wrap around services all whilst grabbing a tasty and healthy snack.

EARLY NIGHT - THIRD PLACE will run as a venue where young people will engage in our range of programs, collaborate on projects, attend talks supporting mental health and develop healthy relationships with other young people and members within the community.



YOUR 3rd PLACE will be a multi-purpose cafe dedicated to youth and young adults. In this space, you will be able to:

  • Meet and have a Conversation with your Support Person 
  • Access the range of Solutions which Choose Thrive offer
  • Discover what opportunities are available in our region
  • Have a bite to eat
  • Engage in a range of individual creative therapies
  • Connect with other young people whilst enjoying a range of activities

YOUR 3rd PLACE is where you can seek support for mental health concerns, engage in our range of Solutions, share a meal and build community, leading you towards a brighter and more prosperous future.

YOUR 3rd PLACE is a youth led initiative. Young people are involved in the decision-making process, ensuring that Choose Thrive will truly meet their needs.


At night, YOUR 3rd THIRD PLACE will run as a venue where you can: 

  • Attend any of the workshops, talks or programs we have running
  • Have a drink and a bite to eat
  • Showcase your talents (ie open mic night, art displays etc)
  • Join in any theme or activity nights we run

Choose Thrive will also host Parenting workshops and classes. These will be held on nights when YOUR 3rd THIRD PLACE is not open to young people.

Choose Thrive is a grassroots, community-led charity, consisting of Central Coast Community Members who saw that there is an extreme lack of mental health and welbeing support for our young people. We do not receive any government funding, and therefore need to raise all funds needed to get our new Mental Health & Wellbeing Cafe up and running.

If you are able to contribute in any way, we'd love to hear from you. You can donate using the buttons below or contact us if you would like to offer your time, expertise or other items. We are so grateful to everyone who is able to play a part in making this happen!

"This is the power of gathering: it inspires us, delightfully,
to be more hopeful, more joyful, more thoughtful:
in a word, more alive"
