Healthy Minds was founded by Stephen Heydt who has professionally assisted people suffering moderate to severe cognitive, emotional and/or behavioural difficulties in Australia since 1981 and overseas before that. 


Stephen has specialised in working with individuals living with various disabilities including autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Stephen’s publication – A Parents’ ABC of Autism Spectrum – is an informative resource which is available for purchase as a physical copy from the clinic or as an e-book (please email enquiries). 


Stephen also has extensive experience working with people who have suffered trauma including victims of human violence (e.g., warfare, homicide, assault, abuse), natural disasters, transport and industrial accidents. 


Stephen consults and supervises his colleagues who continue to offer their services at the Healthy Minds clinic as well as other mental health, medical and education professionals.
