      Description

      Depression and suicide are two tragic issues that touch everyone in our community.

      Research indicates that around 1 in 4 young people will have had a depressive disorder by the end of their adolescence and incredibly on average a young person commits suicide almost every week in Western Australia.

      These statistics are heartbreaking and they should be considered unacceptable in our society today yet the stigma, a lack of understanding and awareness as well as a chronic lack of resourcing in the sector means that too many young people suffer for too long.

      At Youth Focus we are committed to making a difference in the lives of young people who are suffering and those who see no hope on the horizon. As a unique independent not for profit organisation we offered a range of free mental health services to support vulnerable young people in Western Australia.

      We operate with a team of highly trained and skilled psychologists, social workers and occupational therapists to provide a range of early intervention and prevention services free of charge, aimed at supporting young people and their families to overcome the issues associated with suicide, depression and self harm.

      To find out more about how we can help you or someone you care about please visit the ‘Services’ area on our site or alternatively call us on 6266 4333 to talk about your situation.
