The closed School Phobia/ School Refusal Australia Facebook Group was set up to help Australian parents and carers with children and teens displaying signs of school phobia which is also known as school refusal. Many who have experienced supporting a child or teen unable to attend school call it ‘school can’t’.

In this group you’ll find parents and carers who have walked in your shoes. You can then take the next step and join our growing face-to-face peer support group meetings.

Please be aware there is a temporary freeze on new membership of this Facebook group. You can request to join, but new memberships will not be processed until after 1 July 2019. Find out more
