Family services

We believe better mental health starts with stronger communities. That’s why we have a program dedicated to helping children and families in need. Our multi-disciplinary team and collaborative approach means we can identify and provide the best course of care for families as they journey toward independence and brighter futures.

You can find out more about our Children and Families Framework here.

Regional tele-health care

We believe a person’s ability to access care shouldn’t be defined by where they live. We understand the challenges faced by those living in remote and rural communities and our phone and Skype consultations work to connect regional communities with a collaborative and specialised team.

We know that suicide and self-harm rates in rural and remote areas of Australia are significantly higher than the national average and there is often apprehension around help-seeking in a small community for fear of stigma and confidentiality being less assured. Our Skype service works to bridge the gap and help build stronger communities.

We provide consultation, assessment, treatment and support for mental health, personal concerns and complex care needs. We have links to a Brisbane private hospital to include admission where required.

Comprehensive care

We have a multi-disciplinary team on hand to assist.

We know people may benefit from the recommendations and care of various health professionals working together.

Our multi-disciplinary team means we can provide specialised support and, where required, a ‘wrap-around’ coordinated and collaborative treatment approach.

This is helpful to prevent people from feeling as though they have to tell their ‘story’ many times. It also serves to gather a tailored, experienced and coordinated treating team to work together with the person for the best possible outcomes and support.

Our clinic includes:

  • Psychiatrists
  • Psychologists (general, neuro and clinical)
  • Social workers
  • Dietitians
  • Independent medical examiners
