Kids mental health and wellbeing

Providing a range of services to support the positive mental health of children and young people, and care for those who experience problems associated with mental illness.

Network service

The department of Psychological Medicine provides multidisciplinary mental health services that are evidence-based and patient-centred for children and families.

We see children and young people up to the age of 16 years, who receive ongoing care from a specialist medical or surgical service within Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick, and The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

Hospital services

Select a service to access referral and appointment information, clinic details, hospital support services, information for parents and carers, department contact details, and more. 

Our research

Out services support research led by the Kids Mental Health Research (KMHR) research group. Our aim is to produce impactful research that will inform future policy and service development initiatives locally, nationally and internationally.
