Southern Cross Support Services (SCSS) can help you learn new ways to manage your emotions so that you can effectively communicate with those around you.

Positive Behaviour Support is a person-centered framework for supporting an individual where there is presentation of, or a risk of, persistent challenging behaviour.

Effective Positive Behaviour Support exists to improve a person’s quality of life, providing opportunities for skill development and results in increased community inclusion through a reduction in occurrences and impact of behaviours of concern.
