How HeartKids Supports 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.
The HeartKids Teen Camp is another wonderful way to connect with other young people. You can read all about Teen Camp here.
