We are here to support Northern Rivers families with young children 0-5 years impacted by the 2022 flooding events.
Our Strong Minds in the Early Years team will work directly with families, educators and children to help children recover, reduce the impacts of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and thrive post-floods. The program will deliver targeted, trauma-informed support.
The team will use best-practice therapeutic interventions for young children such as play-based therapy, and storytelling and engagement to build capacity in youngsters. The team will also assist families in their understanding of trauma and its impact on children’s behaviour in a group or individual setting.
A multi-disciplinary team with qualified and skilled practitioners from backgrounds including social work, early childhood education, parenting and allied health will deliver the program.
