Youth mental health services

Brisbane North PHN funds youth mental health services that provide psychological intervention to children, young adults and their families.

Brisbane MIND 2 WEB RGB

Children under the age of 12 who have—or are at risk of developing—emotional, behavioural or mental health conditions can access Brisbane MIND4KiDs services.

Young people aged 12–25 with mild to moderate mental illness can access services via four headspace centres in Caboolture, Nundah, Redcliffe and Taringa.

These centres provide a range of support services, including one-to-one counselling, supportive family psycho-education and support groups for young people.
