YoungMinds is a program to assist families living in the Kimberley.
The program is aimed at children 0–18 years, who are experiencing emotional difficulties in their lives or are at risk of developing mental health issues.
We help by allowing individuals to set and achieve their own goals within their family setting.
If a young person is no longer connected with their family, they can choose an adult to support them through this program.
We offer free, practical counselling and support for young people and families for up to 12 months, introducing coping skills and how to develop your individual strengths.
We can meet at a time and place that suits the young person and their family and provide free counselling.
We can coordinate and strengthen support with other community services.
Do you know someone that can benefit from talking to us?
Please contact our helpful teams.
Our aim is to work alongside young people and families.
Every family is unique with different hopes, circumstances, experiences and strengths.
At times some families will need a helping hand and YoungMinds is here to assist where possible by:
Are you aged 18 years or younger, or a parent with children aged 0–18 years?
Not sure whether to get in touch?
Even if you are unsure whether you or your family really need support, but would like to discuss things that are affecting you and your family, we are able to talk with you and refer other relevant services.
If you need a helping hand get in touch.
This service is funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services.
YoungMinds is operated in the Kimberley by HelpingMinds.
