Our counsellors provide support to help to work through and resolve difficult problems that can include depression/anxiety, drug and alcohol, experience of trauma, relationships, stress, anger, sexuality, identity and other everyday living concerns.

Our health education officers run workshops and training on a variety of topics to improve health and well-being of young people in Sydney Local Health District.
