“We want them to leave with the skills, knowledge and tools they need for a good life.”
Baroona’s model of care is person-centred, with each young person receiving an individualised response based on their physical and mental health needs, and personal healing goals.

The centre supports and empowers participants to create their own healing journey by identifying their strengths, networks, cultural identity and sense of belonging.

Our model of care is underpinned by the following evidence-based practice frameworks:

  • Traditional and contemporary cultural healing practices
  • Trauma informed practice
  • A recovery framework
  • Therapeutic community principles
  • Adolescent development framework
  • Person-centred practice
  • Stages of Change

Baroona’s practice also includes: Motivational Interviewing, Process Psychology, Meditation and Mindfulness.
