Community health services

The Child and Youth Community Health Service (CYCHS) unites a variety of specialist community-based healthcare services and health promotion programs to help children, young people and their families lead better lives.
Our multidisciplinary teams of child and youth health nurses, Indigenous and multicultural health workers, early intervention clinicians, allied health, doctors and other professional staff deliver a comprehensive range of health promotion, assessment, intervention and treatment services for children and families in the Greater Brisbane metropolitan area and in other locations across Queensland.

Services are delivered in community health centres, clinics, schools and shopping centres from Kilcoy and Bribie Island in the north, south to Beaudesert, east to the Moreton Bay Islands and west to Brookfield.
