Providing students with mental health care and support

Approximately 1 in 7 children experience mental health conditions like anxiety, depression, and other behavioural issues. Only 1 out of 4 receives help.

At onPsych, we provide schools and educational professionals the support they need to help students fulfill their potential.

onPsych is Australiaโ€™s largest provider of bulk-billed Medicare funded school-based psychology services using Psychologists and Mental Health Social Workers. We specialise in child and adolescent mental health interventions and family intervention dealing with a range of disorders such as anxiety, depression, ASD, ADHD, grief, and self-harm. Working in schools enables us to use a collaborative approach with students, teachers and families; essential for optimal outcomes.

Through early identification, diagnosis, and treatment of mental health conditions, we help students reach their full potential.

In the recent past, the prevalence of mental health conditions among children has been on the rise. Not only do 1 in 7 children suffer from a diagnosable mental illness, but 75% of them get little to no help.

Leaving these conditions untreated poses its own risks. It can impact how a child behaves at home and at school and may even lead them down a path of crime and delinquency. Neglect may even lead to suicide.

With the right mental health care and support, however, this tide can be reversed. If a child is displaying some of the following signs, it's high time to get them the help they need:

๐Ÿ”ธ A decline in school performance

๐Ÿ”ธ Poor grades despite a clear effort otherwise

๐Ÿ”ธ High levels of worry or anxiety

๐Ÿ”ธ Repeated refusal to attend school or to take part in school or other social activities

๐Ÿ”ธ Hyperactivity or fidgeting

๐Ÿ”ธ Continued disobedience or aggression

๐Ÿ”ธ Frequent temper tantrums

๐Ÿ”ธ Depression, sadness or irritability

How can your school collaborate with onPsych to provide mental health care services to students?

Teachers, school principals, and welfare staff are one of the first points of contact for parents who are concerned about their child's well being. Having access to an onPsych psychologist not only gives you peace of mind, but also demonstrates your commitment to meeting students' mental health care needs.

onPsych is here to assist you in providing another avenue of behavioural and mental health care to students within the schooling environment.
