Providing Melbourne families with holistic Child Psychiatrist, Child Psychologist and Family Therapy services

Relational Minds provides family focused services in psychiatry, psychology, functional recovery and mental health education. Based in the north west of Melbourne, we specialise in the mental health assessment and care of children, adolescents, young adults and their families. 

We improve the mental health of young people by providing the experience of connectedness and acceptance, while spreading the message that relationships are the key to recovery. The service is built on the principles of Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy. Our practice is driven by the attitude of Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity and Empathy.

Family Care makes us different

At Relational Minds, we care for your family first. Our goal is to understand and support your family system, to facilitate your young person’s emotional development and recovery from mental illness. We believe treating mental health issues relating to children and adolescents must involve their family or care system (including partners, child protection or other carers).
