Welcome to our website!

On 29 November 2014, Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital (LCCH) opened and Mater Children’s Hospital (MCH) closed. This new hospital is a combination of Mater Children’s Hospital and Royal Children’s Hospital and will offer the best facilities and services for high-level paediatric care in Queensland. 

Governance of all Child and Youth Mental Health Services (CYMHS) currently offered at Mater will transition to Children’s Health Queensland (CHQ) on Saturday 29 November 2014.

There are several CYMHS services which will move into Lady Cilento Children's Hospital, including:

  • CYMHS Inpatient Unit 
  • CYMHS Day Program
  • CYMHS Consultation Liaison.

The Extended Hours Response service (previously provided via Mater Children's Hosptial Emergency Department) will become part of the ‘Acute Response Team’ within the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital Emergency Department.

The following CYMHS community teams will not move when LCCH opens and their phone numbers will remain the same. The governance for these teams will change from Mater Health Services to CHQ.

  • Yeronga (07 3848 8011)
  • Inala (07 3372 5577)

CYMHS programs for infant mental health, multicultural and indigenous mental health, EdLinQ, KOPMI (Kids of Parents with Mental Illness) and disaster recovery will all become part of CHQ as will Mater's CYMHS Research and consumer participation programs.

Mater Health Services will continue to operate youth drug and alcohol withdrawal services through ADAWS.  Kids in Mind Private and Parent Aide (3163 2234 or parentaideunit@mater.org.au) will both remain at and be operated by Mater Health Services.
