Northern Healing and Recovery Program
The Northern Healing and Recovery Program (NHARP) operates in Melbourne’s northern suburbs. We work therapeutically with victim survivors of family violence including children and their caregivers, while keeping their safety front of mind.
NHARP is led by Berry Street’s Restoring Childhood program, which is part of our Take Two service.
Who can access this service?
The program is free and available to people who have or are experiencing family violence, including:
- children aged 0 to 14 years and their caregiver
- young people over 15 years with or without their caregiver
- adult victim survivors
- people who live in Banyule, Darebin, Hume, Merri-bek (formerly Moreland), Nillumbik, Whittlesea or Yarra local government areas.
- adult victim survivors without children can also access support through our Family Violence Service.
Phone consultations with parents or caregivers of children who have experienced family violence to help them:
- respond to their children in the present
- consider the ongoing therapeutic support options for them and their children.
Preliminary sessions with:
- babies, children and young people with their caregiver, or
- people aged 15 years and over.
These sessions will help victim survivors communicate and adapt during times of change and assess their future therapeutic needs.
- Individual sessions for babies, children and young people with their caregiver.
- Individual sessions for people aged 15 years and over.
A range of group sessions for children of all ages, from babies to teens. Additional groups will be added as needed. To find out more, go to Kids First Australia: Child & Family Services.
We provide secondary consultation to other professionals and can co-work with clients.
