YESS is a mental health outreach service for 12 – 25 year-olds who have, or are at risk of developing, a serious mental illness. We provide a service to the “missing middle” – young people who require a more intensive service than headspace Primary Care is funded to provide, but who do not meet NSW state mental health service’s criteria.
YESS is an early intervention program that provides a wrap-around mental health service within a recovery-oriented, strengths-based framework. Specifically, the program provides:
Risk assessment, risk management, and safety planning
Mental health treatment
Family and carer support services
Non-clinical wrap around services
Continual engagement with the young person’s GP
Mental health supports for young people and their families/carers
