Family Mental Health Support Services

What we offer

Funded by the Department of Social Services, the Family Mental Health Support Service aims to improve mental health outcomes for children, young people, and their families. We provide early intervention support to children and young people who are showing early signs of, or are at risk of developing, mental illness, with the support of their families and carers.

Our social workers can support you by providing:

  • Assessment
  • Information and resources
  • Case management
  • Counselling
  • Family interventions and support
  • Tailored referrals
  • Advocacy support

Accessing the program

We deliver this program to families who live in the City of Tea Tree Gully and selected suburbs within the City of Port Adelaide Enfield.

We accept referrals into the Family Mental Health Support Service from any source, including self-referrals. Children and young people up to 18 years do not need a formal diagnosis of mental illness to access this program, but do need to be showing early signs, or be at risk of developing mental health issues.

If you are interested in this service and believe you or your client meet the eligibility criteria, please complete the below referral form. A UCWB team member will be in contact with you discuss your referral within two business days.
