Complex Youth Mental Health design workshop

The PHN has received funding to commission services for Youth Complex Mental Health services. Through an extensive Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Needs Assessment the PHN has identified, young people (12-25yrs) with, or at risk of developing severe mental illness as a priority.

The PHN have engaged Orygen to support this process and facilitate four stakeholder workshops, in Glen Innes, Narrabri, Upper Hunter (Muswellbrook) and Wyong.

These workshops are open to service providers, clinicians, young people, consumers, carers, and those that work with young people.

The purpose of the workshops are to discuss and gather feedback on how our region can design local primary care models that provide the best possible outcomes for young people with severe and complex presentations.

Our aim is to increase the capacity within our region, to facilitate easier access and better pathways to the “right” care to suit a young person’s needs.

Through service design, planning and commissioning activities we seek to:

  • Promote more joined up services, person centered and holistic approaches, and respond to priority areas of need
  • Support region specific, cross-sectoral and integrated approaches to youth mental health services
  • Promote linkages with broader health services, to better support integrated services and referral pathways
  • Ensure targeted and culturally appropriate youth mental health services for Indigenous Australians, LGBTIQ population, and other vulnerable groups.
