An initiative of CYWHS, in collaboration with Helen Mayo House and Anglicare’s Staying Attached Program, Acorn is designed to bring together several therapeutic approaches to treating relational challenges between mother and infant that can arise as the result of emotional or psychiatric difficulties such as post-natal depression.
Dance Artist Sally Chance has been working with children and young people in the arts since 1987.
