By Family Life October 20, 2020

Thanks to funding provided by the Australian Government under the South Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (SEMPHN), Family Life is pleased to announce a new free counselling service for school aged children and young people.

This funded service is aimed at school aged children, without a mental health diagnosis, who will benefit from a brief period of therapeutic support to assist them to overcome stress or anxiety resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Priority access will be given to children aged 12 and under.

The service will be provided by Family Life’s therapeutic services, social enterprise Heartlinks and can be accessed without a referral from a GP via the SEMPHN Access and Referral Team.

For more information call SEMPHN on 1800 862 363, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm weekdays and ask about their ‘Family Life COVID-19 Program’ or visit the Heartlinks website.
