Starfish Family Mental Health Support Service

Are you worried about how a young person is coping with a specific problem or ongoing issues with family, friends, school or stress?

Starfish supports children and young people aged up to 18 years, to improve their emotional health and wellbeing.

We're an outreach early intervention and prevention service in the Moreton Bay and Logan communities. 

Along with supporting young people, we also support their families and carers.

A child or young person may be eligible if:

  • They are aged between 0-18 years
  • They reside in the appropriate catchment in Moreton Bay or Logan
  • They are displaying early signs of mental illness, or are at risk of developing mental illness
  • They are not in the care of the Department of Child Safety
  • They have a parent/guardian who is willing to support them in the program

Improving Mental Health & Maintaining Emotional Wellbeing

Research shows that intervening early when children and young people are experiencing difficulties can make all the difference.

Along with raising awareness of issues leading to poor mental health outcomes, Starfish also works to reduce the stigma associated with mental health issues.

“Thanks to you and your team for the support of our kids, their families and, therefore, our society.”
