About Us:

We deliver four core services which include: general health, mental health, vocational, and alcohol and other drug services.

GPs are supported by a team of experienced youth healthcare experts, including psychologists, psychiatrists, dieticians, social workers and mental health nurses. Having access to a team of co-located services means there is an incredible amount of support, with opportunities for secondary consultations with a psychiatrist and the team.
