KBH Bringing Them Home Counselling Service

1We need healing and health because we are getting older now…
The healing will go on till the day I die. It will not go away. It is still there.
Healing leads to an open mind and makes you open to try new things.
Need to tell my life story to free myself.

Interviews with KBH men that informed the development of the KBHAC strategic plan (KBHAC 2008: 15).

The KBH Bringing Them Home Counselling service is a service model specific to the men who went through Kinchela Boys Home. This service walks with the KBH men on their personal and collective journeys to address issues of grief, loss and trauma resulting from their removal as children from their families and communities. The KBH Bringing Them Home Counselling service also works with the family members of the men who went through KBH to assist them with addressing the impact their family member’s experiences at KBH have had on their lives and any other issues they may be struggling with.

Our key priority is to address the social and emotional wellbeing of the KBH men and their families and to assist in addressing the trauma that continues to adversely affect the KBH men and their families. The KBH Bringing Them Home Counselling service is available to all former KBH inmates and their family members who wish to utilize this service. There are KBH men living throughout NSW and inter-state. Eventually this service will include regular outreach to our non-Sydney based members and their families.
