A regional youth mental health program
Youth mental health is in crisis in Melbourne's western suburbs and many of our young people are missing out on the help they need to reach their potential.
LeadWest is asking the State Government for $200,000 with a co-contribution from each LeadWest council for a tailored mental health program.
According to North Western Melbourne Primary Health Network, western councils have some of the highest avoidable mortality rates.
The purpose of this project is to co-design with young people innovative solutions to strengthen the prevention and early intervention of the youth mental health system in Melbourne's West.
By embracing the voices of our young people with lived experience in Melbourne's
West, we will be able to provide tailored youth-led and place-based solutions and investment recommendations to support the redesign of the youth mental health system over the next five to 10 years.
