About Your Care

Dr Gabrielle Hart Child and Adolescent Psychiatry practice provide assessment and when appropriate ongoing outpatient care. The initial family assessment takes place during a 1.5 hour appointment. Your child or adolescent attends with parents or carers (two adults who live with the young person).

Children are seen initially with their parents in the room, and then separately if they feel comfortable. Parents are also given time separately to allow for all relevant perspectives to be shared.

Please bring along to your appointment any recent school reports, or reports from occupational therapists, speech therapists, psychologists or other specialists. Your referral from your GP (general practitioner) is essential and we are able to receive these by email reception or fax prior to your arrival.

When your assessment is completed you will be able to discuss options for followup. These may include ongoing therapy with Dr Hart, or a plan for the involvement of other clinicians and allied health practitioners, or both.
