    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

    Referrals can be made by:

    • Young people themselves
    • Their family or friend (with the young person’s agreement)
    • GPs
    • School Counsellors
    • Service providers
