Youth Activities

 

The Youth Worker assists and supports youth today for healthier living tomorrow.

This youth friendly health service recognises that young people have specific health problems, needs and concerns and adolescence is a stage of life in which behaviours are formed and many health concerns begin. Appropriate and positive health care services can improve outcomes for young people and prevent long-term difficulties. The programs' focus is on prevention rather than intervention and is primarily for young people aged 12 to 24 years.The Youth Worker is able to assist individual young people and / or their families / carers with choices to improve their health, regarding a wide range of issues including:

 

  • Develop understanding;
  • Resilience;
  • Self-management;
  • Inter-personal relationship skills;
  • Harm minimization; and Safe practice.
Young people have the opportunity to participate in age appropriate community based activities in and around the Discovery Coast to enable them to develop social skills, relax and have fun in a supportive recreational setting. For further information please contact the Youth Worker on 07 4902 1100 or 0437019648. Services delivered are provided with a minimal charge or are free of charge, are non-judgmental and confidentiality is assured. DCCHS receives funding from the federal Department of Health and Ageing under the Regional Health Service program.
