Altru Health

Support for common mental health disorders

You don’t need a diagnosed mental health condition to see us. We help any young adults who’d welcome support to navigate their way through life’s challenges.

You

Let’s start there.

You’re not a clinical condition or a collection of symptoms. You’re a whole person, body, mind and spirit. You have experiences, memories, thoughts and insights.

Being well doesn’t mean changing yourself. In fact, it’s about learning how to be who you really are.

Reasons to see us

We support many young adults who are experiencing life challenges or health difficulties.

There’s no official diagnosis for this but you probably recognise the feeling. Your friends are in great jobs, their relationships are moving forward, maybe they’re even having babies.
