Nexus Education Team


Nexus is a 12-bed unit  located at John Hunter Children's Hospital. It provides services for children and young people aged 5 to 17 years who present with mental health disorders that are conducive to inpatient observation and/or treatment.

The Nexus Education Team provides specialised educational support for students who are admitted to the Nexus Inpatient Unit. The Nexus Education Team works collaboratively with the multidisciplinary team of health professionals at the Nexus Inpatient Unit. With the consent of a young person’s family/carer, the Nexus Education Team can work with schools to support the return to school after an admission to the Nexus Inpatient Unit.

The staff in the Nexus Education Team include a classroom teacher, a school learning support officer and a school counsellor. This team is a service provided by Kotara School.
