Children and Youth Mental Health Service Development Working Group

The Children and Youth Mental Health Service Development Working Group (the Working Group) was convened in March 2023 to provide a platform for consultation, offer advice and provide input into the development and implementation of new mental health projects and/or services for children and young people in the ACT.

The Working Group comprises 25+ NGO and ACT Government stakeholders and is co-lead by the project teams for the Head to Health Kids project (ACT Health), Youth at Risk project (ACT Health) and Early Psychosis Youth Service (EPYS) project (CHN). The Working Group meets every 4-6 weeks.

Recent activity included a review of the draft Trauma Informed Position Statement for children and young people, a deep dive into the EPYS project, and a consultation session for the Head to Health Kids project.
