About the Hub

Monash Health’s Infant Child and Family Health and Wellbeing (ICF H&W) Hub is a new service dedicated to providing therapy that involves all aspects of an infant’s or child’s life from 0-11 years. As a specialist multi-disciplinary service including mental health specialists, medical specialists and allied health with paediatricians, psychiatrists, psychologists and speech pathologists, and parenting support, the ICF H&W is intended for families with children experiencing developmental, behavioural, and emotional challenges.

The ICF H&W Hub will sit alongside Early in Life Mental Health Service (ELMHS) – Monash Children’s and the Child and Family Programs – Monash Health Community. The Hub has funding for community health, mental health, and family support services to enable mental health consultations, assessments, and treatments for infants, children and families in the Southeastern region of Victoria.

This service will be a Hub located at Cranbourne, with spoke sites across the catchment of Dandenong, Casey, and Cardinia as part of a newly co-designed service with a transdisciplinary/multi-disciplinary service.
