Youth Outreach Recovery Support (YORS) is a mental health support service for young people aged 16-25 years who are experiencing mental health symptoms or significant psychological distress. YORS is a welcoming and inclusive new service assisting you to get back on track and strengthen your ability to better manage your mental health. You will have the opportunity to work on your recovery goals through individual support and group workshops. We can help you to link in with the supports you need and support you in the community. We also offer coaching support around relationships, substance use (drug and alcohol), education, employment, homelessness and other needs.
YORS is funded by the Department of Health to provide young people with short to medium term flexible outreach wellbeing support to help them to better manage their mental health, develop practical life skills for independent living and self-care, engage in community life, access other health and social support services they need, and make the journey towards recovery and the life they want.
We can meet you: face to face, virtually via telehealth or by phone. Youth Outreach Recovery Support (YORS) complements the existing Integrated Therapeutic Community (ITC)—our Youth Residential Recovery service—by providing another support option to eligible young people. This support will also be provided before or after an ITC bed-based placement. This includes providing young people eligible for YORS with some access to the ITC group programs and activities on a day basis.
To find out more, please contact the Intake Service in your area. After a brief phone call to gather some information from you and assess your eligibility, you will be transferred to the YORS provider in your area. See details further down on this page.
