We provide a range of services that support young people who experience risks to their health and wellbeing, and disconnection from family and community relationships.
We support children and young people by building upon their strengths, identifying needs and goals, and to make the changes they want in their lives possible with a focus on managing their mental health.
We work closely with families, carers, mental health professionals, school/work and other health professionals in the community, to enable a consistent and collaborative approach in supporting young people and their wellbeing.
Our Youth Services offer:
- Connection for children and young people with the appropriate level and mix of care
