Child and family mental health services 

Are You Searching Child and Family Mental Health Services Near Me in Sydney, NSW?

When starting a family, few soon-to-be-parents expect they will ever search for the words “child and family mental health services near me” or "child and family psychologist Sydney”. But for many families, child and family psychological services are the keys to unlocking their child’s true potential, whether it be in learning, managing emotions or behaviour, or navigating their mental health as children and through to adulthood. 


Child and family health services work closely with infants, children, young people, and their families to provide support and specialist treatment that not only promotes a child’s wellbeing as they grow up but also assist families to grow together. 


For the child, a psychologist or psychiatrist provides a space to help children explore their emotions and work through tools that will help them manage their feelings and behaviours to resolve difficulties. In family therapy, the therapist provides a neutral space for every family member to use their voice, explore relationship difficulties, and create tools to work through preexisting and future issues. 


Finding yourself in need of child and family mental health services is not uncommon. As human beings, each one of us must work hard to maintain our mental health throughout our lives, i. In 2013-2014, almost 14% of children aged 4-11 in Australia reported experiencing a mental health disorder. For children, a mental health problem can have an overwhelming impact on their overall wellbeing. These same struggles often spill over and impact other members of the household, including parents and siblings.


Preventing and treating mental health disorders in childhood is an opportunity to set children up with the coping mechanisms, skills, and tools they can use for life. When the whole family participates, they not only support the child experiencing symptoms of poor mental health, but they also work through the knock-on effects, strengthening current familial relationships and giving each individual the tools they need to navigate future relationships.
