Community Development

The Community Development team focuses on the provision of mental health consultation, training and mental health promotion services to community, education and health organisations/groups across the OYH catchment area of North Western and Western regions of Melbourne.

The role of the Community Development Team at Orygen Youth Health is to strengthen the capacity of individuals and organisations to understand, identify and respond to the mental health needs of young people. The Community Development Team aims to work collaboratively with individuals and organisations in order to identify gaps in the community sector and provide appropriate responses to these needs, such as:

  • Training
  • Specialist consultation
  • Access to youth mental health resources
  • Help with identifying referral pathways for young people
  • Support, develop and implement strategies to improve young people's mental health

To request mental health promotion, consultation or training, please call 03 9342 3744 or fill out the OYH Community Development request form (PDF).
