Young People

Young people with congenital/childhood heart disease can live long, full, and active lives, but they have unique needs and challenges.

Whether you have grown up through your childhood with a heart condition, or whether you have recently been diagnosed, HeartKids has dedicated services to support teenagers and young adults on your journey.

Our MyHeart Facebook community is a dedicated space for 13 - 24 year old people with congenital/childhood heart disease to share stories, keep informed and support each other. If you are in this age group and not already a member, please join!

There are a number of resources and information specifically tailored for teens and young adults, listed in the left menu. Or call our HeartKids Helpline on 1800 432 785 to speak to someone to point you in the right direction.
