Families and Adults

When things go wrong for one person in a family, it may affect everyone. So looking after the wellbeing of everyone in the family is important. When a family is under stress, children are particularly vulnerable.

Talking to someone who understands your situation, and who can help set you along the right path, could be the best decision you make.

We help families:

  • Manage stress and anxiety
  • Manage emotional responses to trauma and bereavement
  • Cope with personal issues
  • Manage separation and loss
  • Resolve disputes.

Concerned about cost? Talk to your doctor about arranging a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) to cover up to 10 counselling sessions under Medicare.

Our services may be covered in your NDIS plan under behaviour support, social skills development, or counselling and therapy.

We also offer fee for service. Contact us if you want to find out more.

About Challenge Community Services

Over 60 years ago we were a small band of parents and friends seeking support services for our children with disability. Today, Challenge has grown to be one of the largest community support services in New South Wales. We provide support to over 2500 people from Albury to Lismore, Sydney, Dubbo, Tamworth and beyond. With over 900 staff, more than 90 of which have a disability, we strive to comply with and exceed all standards required under State and Federal Acts.
In the spirit of Reconciliation, Challenge Community Services acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of this country, and their connection to land, water and community. We pay our respect to them, their cultures and customs, and to Elders both past and present.
