Youth Health

Health service for young people
Our youth health service is to improve the health outcomes of vulnerable and at risk Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people aged 12-18 years who reside in the inner city and greater Brisbane area, through the provision of specialised clinical and non-clinical health services.

We aim to:

  • Provide and promote holistic health care through care, information, education, counseling and support.
  • Collaborate with relevant Indigenous people and agencies to deal with matters relating to social, cultural, health and welfare matters of Indigenous young people.
  • To provide clinical services to Indigenous young people as required in a variety of settings using methods such as outreach and home visiting.
  • Provide antenatal education and visiting services for Indigenous young women at hospitals and liaise with the Family and Child Health unit within ATSICHS and hospitals as required.
  • Support client attendance to referrals and facilitate access to specialist health services.
