Holisitc Youth Program (HYP) links young people living with severe mental illness with quality interventions and supports best suited to their individual needs.
HYP serves as a ‘step up’ for young people who require multidisciplinary team care and care coordination or navigation support.
HYP represents a new service model for youth severe mental health in the region and aims to ensure young people with, or at risk of, severe mental illness are linked with local services and interventions appropriate to their needs which support them in their recovery and reduce long-term mental ill-health.
The model which underpins HYP, builds on services currently delivered via local headspace centres (Bankstown, Campbelltown, and Liverpool) and ReFrame (Wollondilly and Wingecarribee) to young people with mild to moderate mental illness. Core components and underlying principles of the model are informed by Orygen, which works to reduce the impact of mental ill-health on young people, their families and society.
How to Access
Referrals are currently only accepted through headspace centres and ReFrame.
