Getting in contact with us

You can contact us directly or be referred to us from another service provider.

Once in contact with us we will check to make sure that we are the right service for you.  

If we think another service may be better able to meet your needs we will link you directly to them.

Otherwise you will be contacted by a youth health worker, nurse or Aboriginal clinical health worker for an initial assessment.  This will identify what further care or appointments are needed.

Have your say

We want our service to be a safe and supportive space for young people and your feedback and participation is important.  So get involved and have your say.

You can:

  • talk with us about developing a program to suit your specific needs
  • provide feedback on services through surveys or a feedback form
  • join a youth advisory group
  • contact the Consumer Feedback Coordinator on 8161 6710 or by email via Consumer Feedback Coordinator.
