Family Mental Health Support Service

What we offer

Funded by the Department of Social Services, the Family Mental Health Support Service (FMHSS) provides early intervention support to children and young people who are showing early signs of, or are at risk of compromised mental health.

Our practitioners can support you by providing flexible, responsive options including:

  • Short-term (up to 6 sessions) support including linking families to appropriate information, resources, and referrals to other services
  • Long-term (up to 12 months) therapeutic support for children, young people and their families
  • Community outreach, mental health education and community development activities


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.

Referrals are accepted from health providers, education, other community services, families and carers.

Give us a call if you have any questions about eligibility.
