Children’s Services 0 – 12 years
Therapeutic one on one counselling services to children between 0-12 years of age who are diagnosed with or at significant risk of a mental disorder or childhood behavioral or emotional disorder.
Infants and children do not require a formal diagnosis to access this service. However, observations of concerning behavior, and evidence that the child is at significant risk of developing a disorder needs to be indicated by the referring GP.
To access all RDGP mental services, make an appointment with your doctor for a GP Mental Health Treatment Plan (this is a slightly longer consult- so tell the receptionist what you are booking in for). The doctor will send your referral to RDGP and you will be contacted by one of our mental health professionals.
