What The Family App by Drummond St Services

Image result for what the family app

The period of transition from being a couple to becoming a new family can be a wonderful time, but it presents a big learning curve. This means that is is also the highest risk time for the onset of problems that include things like relationship breakdown, problematic drug and alcohol use, family violence, and the onset of mental illness (usually, but not limited to, post-natal depression in men and women).

Drummond St Services has developed the What The Family?! App to assist couples in identifying any risk factors in their relationship that exist or may develop, including early identification of risk factors for family violence.

You can download the WTFamily?! App from the app store or Google Play. The app provides a series of questions and tip sheets to help you decide whether your relationship is likely to experience violence.
