The evidence shows that often mental health disorders emerge during teenage years and adolescence. Alarmingly, suicide accounts for the death of more young people than car accidents.
When children and young people are not acting the way they normally do, or display behaviours that are negatively affecting their family, friendships, schooling or work life, they may need the support of a health professional.
The team at Lives Lived Well Specialist Health Centre includes psychologists with experience working with children, teens and young adults up to 25 years old. We listen without being judgemental: our qualified therapists will support your child to express their feeling and thoughts and develop helpful strategies.
Our expert team of practitioners can help children and young people experiencing:
- Depression, anxiety, low mood
- Personality disorders
- Anorexia, bulimia and other eating disorders
- Bullying, violence and discrimination
- Self-harm and self-injury
- Low self-esteem
- Suicidal thoughts and hopelessness
- Issues with sexual or gender identity
- Problems with drugs and/or alcohol
