Programs

Group programs to help the whole family get on the same page.

GameAware Programs are designed to empower families to find the sweet spot where we balance engagement in real life with enjoying video games as a hobby. We do this by teaching sustainable, intelligent gaming strategies and building resilience. 
Continuing care is available via private sessions or referrals to Headspace.
Check out the calendar below for a look at all the upcoming programs.

All group programs include full membership access to the online resource

Some familes may be eligible for subsidies on program fees thanks to our local Headspace branch. Please enquire for details.
