We want to hear from you! The draft Western Australian Youth Health Policy 2018–2023 (The Policy) is ready for your input.

The Policy is a way to voice the health and wellbeing needs of young people aged 10-24 years and aims to advise health services on how to best support young people be the healthiest they can.

The key focus areas of the Policy are:

·       providing youth friendly health services

·       improving access to health services

·       building knowledge and improving participation

·       achieving equitable health outcomes

·       collecting and using data appropriately

·       building health professionals' skills in working with young people

The current drafts of the Policy and Companion Resource are available in PDF and Word for you to read under the 'Related' heading below.

If you have any queries or need assistance, please contact Health Networks either by email healthpolicy@health.wa.gov.au or phone 9222 0200.
