Momentum for Parents

Welcome to Momentum. The Momentum website was designed to help children and adolescents who are experiencing difficulties with anxiety, depression, and related issues. We know that mental health challenges in childhood and adolescence can lead to social, emotional and academic problems. Family members and teachers are often the first to notice mental health problems in young people, but it can be hard for them to know where to turn to for help.

‘Momentum’ was developed by clinicians and digital mental health experts from six leading Australian universities, as well as community and government health partners, to provide parents/guardians with:

  • Tools to determine whether a young person might be experiencing difficulties
  • Treatment programs for a variety of difficulties, and
  • Mental health care information and resources.

The Momentum Program is free in Australia, accessible on a computer or tablet, and is completed by the young person at their own pace. The Momentum platform was co-designed with parents, teens, and children to ensure that the programs are engaging and enjoyable for young people to complete.
