Delivering a Healthy WA

Youth Mental Health Program

The Youth Mental Health Program is managed through NMHS Mental Health.

The aim of the Youth Mental Health program is to reduce the incidence, prevalence and impact of mental health and psychosocial problems for young people, in consultation and collaboration with other service providers and the broader communities in which young people reside and find themselves connected.

Youth Mental Health Community Services consist of Youth Axis, Youth Hospital in the Home, YouthLink and YouthReach South. These services work collaboratively to provide a range of specialist mental health services to improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people in Perth, Western Australia.

Joining the Youth Mental Health Program in March 2017, Youth Hospital in the Home (YHITH) provides a contemporary alternative to mental health hospital admission and treatment for young people.

Youth Mental Health is not a comprehensive program able to provide mental health services to all young people with serious mental health disorders within the youth age cohort. As a consequence, Youth Mental Health works closely with Adult Mental Health Services and Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services.

Youth Mental Health is framed by the five key reform principles of the WA Mental Health Commission's 2020 Strategic Plan.

  • Respect and participation
  • Engagement
  • Diversity
  • Quality of life
  • Quality and best practice.
