Family and Youth Service Gunbalanya

Family and Youth Services Gunbalanya provides early support for children and young people that may be at risk of or affected by mental illness or mental health concerns. The program works in partnership with families and is child/youth centred, strengths based and family focused.

Our program places children and young people at the heart of the program, ensuring that their voices are heard and listened to. We focus on supporting young children and their families to strengthen their social and emotional wellbeing. We work in partnerships with other community services providers to reach vulnerable children, young people and families who may not otherwise engage with the mental health or children’s services sector.

How will this service help my child and my family?

The program provides practical whole-of-family support, so that families can respond quickly and early to a child/young person at risk; to make a difference in achieving and improving long-term outcomes for children, young people and their families. Support includes:

  • Information and referral for families
  • Tailored, flexible assistance to meet the needs and situation of each child, young person and/or family members
  • Culturally appropriate community outreach, mental health promotion/education and community development activities including general group work with children, young people and their families/carers

Who is the service available to?

  • Families where a parent has a mental illness
  • Young people (aged between 16-24 years) who may be affected by mental illness
  • Families where a family member is affected by mental illness
