Child & youth mental health

Child & youth mental health

We care for and treat children, young people and their families while they are experiencing psychiatric, psychological and behavioural problems.

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 information, assessment and referral.
