After a challenging year, many children may require some additional support as they make the transition back to school and normal social activities.

If there are families in your community who are concerned about their child’s mental health, we provide a range of accessible services to support the mental health and wellbeing of children of all ages.

Our highly qualified child psychologists work with children, their families, and teachers to provide assistance and treatment for children who may be struggling.

We also offer several groups and programs to support children’s developmental needs, and to help families raise happy, healthy children and teenagers.

If you or someone in your community could use some extra support, our Child Psychology team may be able to assist. Simply call 9430 9100, or email contact@healthability.org.au
