So you might be wondering a bit about us and where we have come from? YLO Psychology Clinic is new, however, the YLO brand has been around for several years. YLO, which is short for Youth Lifestyle Options, is a brand that originated in early 2008 within the community services sector within South East Queensland. Providing residential care and intervention services to children, young people and families through the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability services, YLO has become a well known and highly regarded service provider within the sector.
From the years of providing intervention services to disadvantages and at-risk children and young people within the government sector, YLO has discovered that there remains a need for specialised child and family intervention services to support children, adolescents and families within the community/private area. YLO Psychology Clinic was born out of this and the company’s continual focus on prevention and early intervention. YLO Psychology Clinic seeks to provide a specialised service targeting children, young people and families living in the Logan and Brisbane South area.
YLO Psychology Clinic has been open since July 2015.
