Our child and youth mental health services provide assessment and treatment to children and young people.
Care is provided within our wards as well as in our community clinic. We also have some outreach services that visit you at home.
We also play a strong role in educating and building the skills of people and organisations who have a role in supporting young people’s mental health. This includes programs run in collaboration with local schools.
Our child and youth mental health triage service is the first point of contact for anyone concerned about a young person’s mental health. You can call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for assessment and referral.

At Austin Health, we believe all children and young people have the right to feel safe and be always kept safe.
We have zero tolerance for any form of child abuse and commit to protect children from all forms of physical and emotional violence, injury or abuse, neglect, maltreatment or exploitation, including sexual abuse.
Nurse Phoebe has some advice on what you can do, and who you can speak to, if you're feeling unsafe.
