Youth Health

 

We routinely measure height and weight in all children as part of a child’s health assessment.

 

​​​​​​​​​​​​About Our Service


The Youth Health Service provides primary health care services to young people 12 to 24 years who live, study or work in the Northern Sydney Local Health District (NSLHD).

We understand that physical, psychological and social issues combine to influence young people's health and wellbeing. We have a special focus on young people who are vulnerable, affected by homelessness, live with a chronic illness or disability, are living in stressful situations, and/or require support to access health services.

Our Youth Health Nurses provide youth health assessments, brief intervention, information and referral. Some of the primary health areas we cover include:

  • preventative health advice
  • nutrition and weight
  • sexuality and gender issues
  • sexual health education, screening and testing
  • contraception advice
  • support for unplanned pregnancy
  • drug and alcohol use
  • emotional, psychological and relationship issues
  • sleep problems
YouthHealth  

We support young people to make informed decisions that promote their health and wellbeing and work collaboratively with a range of health services and services for young people in the community.

Youth health is not a specialist mental health service.

If you or someone you know needs help with a mental health problem call the NSW Mental Health Line on 1800 011 511.

If it is an emergency call 000 or go to your nearest hospital Emergency Department.
