The Iceberg Foundation


The Iceberg Foundation is a LGBTIQA+ owned and operated mental health service. We are dedicated to providing an understanding, supportive, and non-judgmental environment to those seeking support. Our aim is to provide a safe space for people of all ages, backgrounds and walks of life to work on and through their past, present and future.
