Young People's Health Service (YPHS)

About this service

The Young People's Health Service (YPHS) is run by The Royal Children’s Hospital Centre for Adolescent Health. It is the only primary health care service that specifically works with young people who are experiencing homelessness and/or marginalisation. They provide primary health services for young people aged 12–24 who are experiencing homelessness and/or marginalisation. It does not cost young people anything to access the service, and all young people are encouraged to drop in during clinic hours. Nurses, a counsellor, a care co-ordinator, doctors and other health staff provide assessment, treatment, information and referral as needed.
