Adolescents & Youth

1 in 7 young Australians will experience a mental health condition.

For parents:

The world your children are growing up in presents unique challenges from previous generations.
In addition to raging hormones and teenage challenges, they're having to navigate a technology focused world; which often leaves them less capable of managing social issues (peer pressure, bullying, conflict, relationships) and managing their emotions (anger, sadness, anxiety, stress etc).
This can leave many vulnerable to developing a range of the mental health issues. 

Perhaps you've been watching your child suffer and they're not willing to talk about it or seek help - this is extremely common (especially for young boys). 
Maybe you're concerned about their substance or social media use or they just haven't seemed themselves lately?
Perhaps you're worried about their school refusal or performance or that they have no direction post high school? (see career section)


We pride ourselves on being able to connect with boys, so if you're worried about a loved one in your life, contact us.

For young people:

Being young is an extremely exciting, yet equally challenging, time of your life.
Physical & mental changes, first experiences, finding out who you are and how to deal with life in general, means many young people develop a range of mental health issues. This can have a huge impact on your social, school and/or home life.
Maybe you've been feeling down or you're not sure how to deal with your emotions? Are you being bullied? Are you arguing with your parents more often?

If you're reading this, you probably have a feeling something isn't right but you're not sure what to do or where to turn.

Many young people, especially males, don't seek support; thinking it's weak to ask for help and often try to fix things on their own. 
We encourage you to contact us with any questions or queries you may have about seeking support.
You can give us a call, shoot us an e-mail or even hit us up on facebook.
 

Just remember - You're not alone and professional help is available.
