Youth mental health services

Consultation has concluded

What does Casey need?
Council is seeking a funding commitment of $1 million to develop stage two of the Casey Youth Hub in Narre Warren.

Why does Council need funding for increased youth mental health services?

The City of Casey has been experiencing significantly high rates of mental health issues among young people, and an associated high rate of suicide.

Council is seeking funding from the State Government to increase service provision and support for young people in the region.

More funding for youth mental health services in the City of Casey would:

  • Increase the number of young people getting timely, effective and professional support for their mental health issues
  • Reduce the number of young people committing suicide.
  • Reduce the number of young people engaging in self-harm or becoming involved in near-miss incidents.

Without this funding, local services will continue to struggle to meet the demand for support.
