    About This Service

    'Mental Health & Us' is an in-school program aimed at year 9 and 10 students to build resilience, encourage peer support, educate about and de-stigmatise mental health issues. 

    The program is a joint effort between Yarra Ranges Youth and health service providers such as headspace Knox and the high school. These sessions last as long as a single class and cover a range of topics that encourage discussion and participation.
