The Committee recognises the importance of a collaborative approach to this issue and is committed to the ongoing work with the local sectors and agencies. The agencies working together have ensured referral pathways are clear, including contact information and helpful tools that are available. Support has been provided to ensure and encourage information sharing between schools and agencies whilst maintaining confidentiality.
The City of Casey would like to acknowledge the contribution made by the Department of Health as well as its partners in supporting the development of this kit. The City of Casey would also like to recognise all agencies for their ongoing commitment, time, resources and dedication to improving mental health outcomes for the young people in our community.
The Youth Mental Health Resource Kit was launched on 3 September 2012 at the Positive Youth Mental Health Forum in the City of Casey by the Hon. Mary Wooldridge, MP Minister for Mental Health, Women’s Affairs & Community Services.
