All systems go – Youth Health Hub
We are very happy to announce the soft launch of the interim from this week with services to expand as COVID -19 restrictions are eased.
The Youth Health Hub is for young people in the Yarra Ranges between the ages of 12 – 25.
The service will provide mental health, general health, housing, legal, and education support, as well as life skills and activities.
The Youth Health Hub has been funded by the Australian Government under the PHN Program for a two-year period.
The Youth Health Hub is operated by Inspiro Community Health Service, and consortium partners including Oonah Health and Community Services Aboriginal Corporation, Eastern Community Legal Centre, Anchor housing services and Cire education services.
Working in collaboration with the Youth Health Hub is the Main Street Medical Practice in Lilydale as well as the Knox headspace satellite in Lilydale, which is separately funded by the Australian Government.
Services include mental health, youth counselling, sexual health, dietetics, exercise physiology, housing and homelessness assistance, education support, supports for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, youth workshops, legal assistance and youth-friendly GP services among others.
The hub will operate virtually in line with COVID-19 restrictions. A physical hub will be located in Lilydale sometime later this year as COVID-19 restrictions are eased, with outreach services operating from partner organisations including Anchor in Lilydale, Inspiro in Belgrave, Oonah and ECLC in Healesville and Cire in Yarra Junction.
