Youth-Action-Plan-2019

Monash Youth Services (MYS) consulted with 1195 young people, aged 10 – 25 who share significant links with the City of Monash.

The results show that young people are most concerned about: Education, Feeling Stress, Employment & Career and Mental Health.

Via further consultation with the Monash Youth Ambassadors, Monash Young Person’s Reference Group and local services, in 2019 MYS will implement the following additional actions in response to the concerns of local young people:

     ·   Mental Health First Aid training available to Monash secondary schools

     ·   Increased accessibility of youth support services in Monash

     ·   Life skills workshops on the topics of jobs, money and stress management

     ·   A parent workshop focused on stress and educational achievement

We will continue to provide free and confidential information, support & referral and opportunities for young people to develop and lead in their community.
