Abstract: Children and young people who have experienced profound abuse and neglect, and are now in care of the State have historically been a difficult population for whom to provide effective mental health services. A joint project piloted by Queensland Health, the Department of Child Safety, the Department of Education and the Arts and the Department of Disability Services Queensland is currently being trialled in three locations throughout Queensland. The multi-disciplinary team at Townsville which includes psychiatrists, psychologists, mental health nurses and social workers began accepting referrals from the Department of Child Safety via a panel in January 2006. This paper provides a short report on the Townsville team, offers an amalgam case presentation and a summary of the Professional Development and Supervision utilised for the clinicians.
