Educating communities across WA
At Youth Focus, we believe in equipping young people and community members with the confidence, willingness and ability to respond to their own mental health needs, and of those around them, at the earliest opportunity.
We deliver the Mental Notes education program in schools across Western Australia to help young people understand that mental health issues can impact anyone and that we are here to help. A key priority of education is to de-stigmatise mental health issues for young people so they are empowered to seek help and lead healthy and meaningful lives.

We engage with individuals and groups in the community to educate and build awareness about youth mental health issues and suicide prevention.
