Trauma and young people

Moving toward trauma-informed services and systems

Orygen, the National Centre for Excellence in Youth Mental Health has released a major report that shows Australian mental health services lack the capability and capacity to respond to the needs of young people affected by trauma.

The report, Trauma and young people: moving toward trauma-informed services and systems, co-authored by Orygen, the National Centre of Excellence in Youth Mental Health, and Phoenix Australia, Centre for Posttraumatic Mental Health, recommends government, services and young people collaborate to develop better identification, assessment, support and treatment of trauma within mental health systems.
