Staffed by mental health clinicians, Raphael Services support individuals and families where the parent is experiencing a mental health disorder or where there are parent-infant relationship issues.

Raphael Services welcome clients from all communities and all cultural backgrounds. Our services are available free of charge or at minimal cost as part of St John of God Health Care's commitment to Social Outreach.
