Youth Focus has made the decision to close its Joondalup office from Friday 24 June 2022.
This closure is due to the current site not being suitable to the needs of young people, staff and growth of the organisation.
Youth Focus is exploring options for alternate premises in the Joondalup area with the needs of young people with mental health challenges at the fore.
The organisation will support young people based in Joondalup and surrounds from its Burswood office, in schools, via telehealth and in partnership with other local agencies.
At Youth Focus, young people’s mental wellbeing remains the highest priority. Young people currently accessing support at the Joondalup office will continue to receive support via the platform most suited to their needs.
If young people need emotional support during this transition period, there are several resources on the Youth Focus website or below:
