Child and Adolescent Health Service

The Child and Adolescent Health Service (CAHS) provides a comprehensive service supporting the health, wellbeing and development of young Western Australians. We aim to ensure that children and young people get the best start in life through health promotion; early identification and intervention; and patient-centred, family-focused care.

CAHS is made up of:

Community Health: Is a range of community-based early identification and intervention services for children, young people and families across the Perth metropolitan area. This includes child health assessments (also known as Purple Book appointments), screenings, immunisations, school health and support and advice for every child across the state.

Mental Health: Provides mental health services to children and young people across the Perth metropolitan area. This includes community-based programs, inpatient care at PCH and a range of specialised services for children with complex mental health conditions across the state.

Perth Children’s Hospital: PCH is a 298 bed hospital that provides inpatient, ambulatory and outpatient services to children and young people up to the age of 16. It has 12 multi-use operating theatres, including an intraoperative MRI and two interventional theatres, a dedicated fun and entertainment area, and family indoor and outdoor lounge spaces.
