Child and Youth Mental Health Service (CYMHS) specialises in helping infants, children and young people up to the age of 18 who have complex mental health needs. We provide community- and hospital-based services, outreach and telepsychiatry programs, early intervention, forensic and other specialty services to more than 2,500 children and young people each year.
We work collaboratively and in a recovery-oriented way with infants, children and young people and their families. This means we recognise and help build on individual and family strengths for better health and wellbeing. By working together, we support children and young people to get back on track to reach their optimal mental health.
We have community-based CYMHS teams working across the Greater Brisbane and Pine Rivers regions supporting local communities in our catchment area, but also provide outreach services and support across Queensland through our specialist programs.
