Update on CAMHS Therapy Dog

19 Feb 2021

Barwon Health’s Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service have provided an update on their most popular employee, Maslow the trainee Therapy Dog. 

Since welcoming Maslow’s his working day at CAMHS starts with a tour of the office where he enthusiastically greets each clinician, getting a much desired tummy rub from all. At this point, Maslow’s antics have brought laughter and fun to clinicians at CAMHS and he will commence formal therapy training when he is 12 months of age to work with children and young people attending CAMHS.

The CAMHS team are excited that Maslow will be able to engage with children and young people attending CAMHS in the near future.
