The role of youth workers in helping young people access mental health care

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

One of the greatest challenges to intervening early and taking a preventive approach to mental ill-health is the reluctance of young people to seek professional mental health care. The life stages between 12 and 25 years are characterised by both the highest levels of need for effective mental health care and the lowest levels of service use.
