Meridian Youth and Family Therapy program aims to strengthen relationships and improve family functioning whilst also focusing on the evolving needs of the young person. Many of the families referred to this program want to find solutions to their problems and we know that each person in the family is impacted differently when there are worries, problems or conflict and communication difficulties. The team provides family therapy as well as individual counselling and support.
We provide short, medium and long term support to young people (aged 10 to 18 years if reside in the Inner East LGA or 15-23 years if reside in the Eastern Region) and their families.
