Child (and Parent) Information & Counselling
If you live in Albany, Bunbury, Busselton, Cockburn, Kwinana, Mandurah, Manjimup, Margaret River or Rockingham you can get free support through our 4families service.
All families go through life's ups and downs. The downs can create worry, stress and tension within the family. You might be concerned about your children's mental emotional and social wellbeing.
You are not alone. Often families need support to get through the tough times.
How can we help?
4families is a free service that provides whatever support families and carers need, linking them to a variety of services to reduce family stress and enable children and young people to reach their full potential.
We can provide:
- counselling and emotional support
- information and referrals
- home-based family support
- workshops, seminars and groups
- community development activities
- support for grandparents and carers
We focus on prevention and early intervention by addressing issues that affect the mental and emotional well-being of children and young people.
Where families and carers need more assistance, we will actively work with other services including schools, community organisations, Centrelink and mental health services.
4families is only available for those living in the Kwinana, Cockburn, Albany, Rockingham, Mandurah, Busselton, Margaret River, Manjimup and Bunbury (including Collie, Harvey and Waroona) catchment areas.
This Family Mental Health Support Service is funded by the Department of Social Services.
