Youth Mental Health
Our Connected program is designed to improve the social and emotional wellbeing of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, under 25 years old and living in the ACT.
This free program focusses on helping you to recognise and reach your goals. Our Social and Emotional Wellbeing Workers and Psychologists provide one-on-one support in the areas of:
- Social isolation
- Sexual identity
- Alcohol and other drugs
- Goal setting
How do I access the Connected program?
We currently offer two ways to access the program:
- By appointment through our Connected office located at 1 Torrens Street, Braddon ACT
- We will meet you at a location convenient to you.
In both cases, the service is free. You can either self-refer or be referred through other services, such as your local General Practitioner (GP), school or other organisation.

A message from our CEO
Thank you to our clients and stakeholders who have helped us navigate the COVID-19 period, and supported us as we transitioned services to phone and video consultations. We are watching the situation closely and staying informed via the Australian Government.
We are still maintaining physical distancing guidelines and working remotely, but will update clients and stakeholders as this changes.
What this means
- Our physical office locations are still temporarily closed; however, staff are working from virtual locations, and can still be reached via email or mobile during regular business hours
- Most of our services are available via phone and video consultations so you can access them from the comfort of your own home
- For those services where we are unable to offer phone/video consultations, our staff are ensuring regular contact and updates as to when these services can resume
