International Youth Day celebrates young people and recognises the challenges they face.
We support young people with a variety of services and resources that build skills and promote wellbeing.
MENTAL HEALTH & WELLBEING
Our Family Mental Health Support Services help young people to improve relationships, mental health and wellbeing.
We have several group programs where young people can chat about gaming, understand how it can affect them, and make sure it’s a positive part of their life. Take Control aims to support gamers whose gaming has gone from fun to harmful.
CONSENT & RESPECTFUL RELATIONSHIPS
We recently developed the Rize Above respectful relationships program. Visit the Rize Above website to find games, videos and an online course for young people.
MULTICULTURAL YOUNG PEOPLE
PEACE Multicultural Services offer a range of services for adults and young people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. This includes a group called Unidos, for those who identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community.
YOUNG CARE LEAVERS
Our Post Care Support Services (PCSS) support young care leavers as they become independent. PCSS have also developed the GOM Central website, Straight Up podcast, and GOM City game, as resources for young people during this transition.
SCILS supports young people who are at risk of disengaging from school. We work with young people holistically. We help manage barriers to education and provide them with a range of alternative learning options.
