The Child and Youth Mental Health Service (CYMHS) provides support for vulnerable families with children and young people who are showing early signs of or at risk of developing mental illness.
This free non-clinical support is for families with children and young people (0 to 18 years old) who are showing early signs of, or could be at risk of, developing mental illness.
Our professional staff work alongside young people, their families and carers to support the young person’s mental wellbeing. We can provide brief interventions, intensive long-term support and community education to help you achieve your goals.
The program has a primary focus on children and young people while working with them in a whole of family context.
This service is currently provided through our Hobart and Burnie offices with outreach into the community. We also regularly visit King Island.
Referrals to this service can be anyone including family, carers, service providers and school teacher or school social workers (family consent is required).
This program is made available primarily through funding from the Department of Social Services. Visit dss.gov.au for more information.
