drummond street services Geelong service has moved

As of March 1st, we are now at 337 Ryrie St Geelong, co-located with other health and allied support services.

This year drummond street services celebrates 130 years of providing services to families and children, and proudly 6 years to families and children in the Greater City of Geelong and Bellarine.

Our skilled and experienced family therapist, social worker and counselor see families in their homes, classroom, in the community and at the Ryrie Street premises.  Our support services are free and voluntary.

Our health and wellbeing approach is to support families to respond to the real life ups and downs, to get in early with support for their child and young people to ensure the best possible lives despite, at times, what life can throw at us.

We support families with new babies, kids with their worries about school, young people with concerns about friendships, study or their emotional health, stressed parents, and life changes for relationships and financial pressures that impact on our lives at any stage and can affect the mental health and wellbeing of children.

As well as individual support for families and children, we run information sessions for parents in the community and at schools.  It provides a great way for parents to grab information or support that fits in with their busy lives.

Parents who have attended our Parenting Kids Who Worry Too Much groups have said: “This group is valuable to all parents and not just those with kids who worry. I learnt so much to help all of my kid’s emotional wellbeing”.   A local Geelong dad told us “It’s not so much about the why of kid’s behaviour but the what I can do to understand and help”.

Come along to our next seminar and group on Parenting Children Who Worry, from 17th May in Corio. We will also be at Geelong’s Big Play Day 27th March at GMHBA stadium. This will be lots of fun for kids. Come and chat to us there.
