Child and Family Partner

Rebecca is a mother who has had her children removed due to addiction.  She turned her life around and her children are back in her care.


Rebecca feels that the system often sets parents up to fail and that their policies and implementation methods are sometimes punitive in nature. Rebecca feels the system is “child focused” and believes it should be more “family focused” to keep families together as often as possible.


Children aging out of or still within the state care system can often have poor outcomes and Rebecca sees the importance of working with families in a rehabilitative way.


The Mental Health Professionals’ Network (MHPN) respectfully acknowledges the Wurundjeri and the Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin nation, the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land on which our office is situated. We also acknowledge Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
