Youth outreach recovery support (yors)

Support for young people experiencing mental health symptoms or significant psychological distress.

Working with a Recovery Support Worker, explore what affects your mental health and better understand your thoughts, feelings and experiences. We help you find strategies to manage your mental health and build skills to make changes that help now and for the future.

Service details

We provide young people (aged 16-25) with short to medium term flexible outreach wellbeing support to help them better manage their mental health, develop practical life skills for independent living and self-care, engage in community life, access other health and social support services they need, and make the journey towards recovery and the life they want.

We provide outreach support in the following local government areas:

Northern Metro – Darebin, Whittlesea
North West Metro – Melton, Brimbank, Hume
Inner West Metro – Moreland, Moonee Valley, Melbourne
South West Metro – Hobsons Bay, Wyndham, Maribyrnong

How is this service different from the Youth Residential Recovery service?

Youth Outreach Recovery Support (YORS) will complement the existing Youth Residential Recovery (YRR) service by providing an outreach support option to eligible young people.

This support will be offered before or after a YRR bed-based placement. This includes providing young people eligible for YORS with some access to the YRR group programs and activities. Referrals to YORS will not be required to be reviewed by a selection panel, like they are for YRR.

Fees & eligibility

Young people in Victoria aged 15 – 25 who are experiencing mental health symptoms or significant psychological distress.

Young people can refer themselves to this program, or with their consent they can be referred by family members or carers, schools, youth services, GPs, private and public mental health clinicians and other health professionals.
