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.
