Youth Peer Support Program

Support for young people by peers with lived experience in managing and/or supporting loved ones with mental health challenges.

The Youth Peer Support Program is an initiative based on the principles of early intervention response for young people beginning to experience life challenges challenges.

  • Peer support with young adult mentors who have lived experience and training in life challenges.
  • Partnerships that are customised, flexible and directed by the young person’s needs.
  • Connection to the community by participating in peer supported activities within a public setting.

This program is currently based in South East Melbourne and would suit people living locally. We are attracting new mentors regularly, so please contact us to see if we have one in your area.
