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

Based in Woodend in the Macedon Ranges, Relational Minds provides family focused services in psychiatry, psychology, functional recovery and mental health education. We specialise in the mental health assessment and care of children, adolescents, young adults and their families. We are developmentally focused, trauma informed and our focus is on the person and their family or system.

Family Care makes us different

At Relational Minds, our focus is on the family. Our first 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).
