Support for Youth

We understand?

Got a lot going on? No shame in talking it out. One in four young Australians currently has some sort of mental health condition – but the reality is everyone can improve their mental health – why don’t you?

It’s really important to look after your mental health so we have put together a heap of interesting articles and information for you to read that will help you to look after your mental health.

Trying to juggle school, sports and a social life all at the one time can be tricky, so if you would like to stay on top of your mental health and wellbeing, check out the information provided on our site or contact one of the services provided in the Geelong region to talk to someone face to face.

And remember – growing up isn’t that easy, so remember to look after your mental health.
