School phobia, school refusal, or as we call it ‘school can’t’, is a hidden and distressing issue affecting children and teenagers and their families.
Several years ago the closed School Phobia/ School Refusal Australia Facebook group was created and families began to realise they were not alone.
School Phobia/ School Refusal Australia has monthly peer support groups in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Canberra.
Parents in other Australian cities and regions are encouraged to start a peer support group in their area. For more information contact us.
