Linked

Our Linked program supports young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Canberra region – in the case that they are experiencing, living with, or at high risk of, the misuse of alcohol and other drugs.


What is Linked

Linked is a free program that supports you to access the right services, should you be suffering (or at risk of) the effects from the misuse of alcohol and other drugs.

Our care coordinators aim to motivate you to access treatment options locally, while ensuring the involvement of your family in your pathway to better health. They will:

  • Help link you to relevant services at the hospital or within the wider community
  • Support you to improve your health and wellbeing
  • Ensure that you feel connected to the local community in order to encourage a better pathway to health
  • Improve your confidence to feel independent and in control of your wellbeing

Where can I access Linked?

Our Care Coordinators cover the Yass Valley, with the support of the Ngunnawal Aboriginal Corporation. 

How do I access Linked?

Linked is available to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Canberra region. You can access this service through self-referral or with a referral from your GP.
