Youth Mental Health

The Life Without Barriers Youth Mental Health Team deliver mental health support services across Tasmania.

The LWB #synergy Youth Mental Health Service in Southern Tasmania provides intensive psychological and case management support to young people aged 12-25 years old, and their families, with severe and complex mental illness. This service is provided on an outreach basis to young people in their own communities and works closely with others involved in a young person's support network. Referral to this service may be made by self/family or from other service providers supporting a young person.

The Statewide #iConnect Youth Mental Health Service provides intensive mental health and wellbeing support to young people aged 12-18 years old, and their families, on an outreach basis, across Tasmania. To be eligible for this service, the young person must also be a client of the Tasmanian Government Child Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).

Our approach to mental health support operates within a youth friendly framework of recovery. Young people and their families are fully involved in decision-making when planning their care and recovery. Our services respect the culture and influence of individual experience and support young people to develop their existing strengths, maximise resilience, and make progress towards improving their mental health, wellbeing, and functioning.
