About this Event

Youth Mental Health: Community of Practice

Youth Affairs Council Victoria (YACVic) and Orygen are partnering to establish a state-wide Community of Practice on Youth Mental Health.

We invite young people, organisations, workers and other experts to come together to explore potential changes in the mental health system, future advocacy priorities, and the work of the Royal Commission into Victoria's Mental Health System.

YACVic and Orygen will be hosting an ongoing series of events and consultations to build connections, facilitate information sharing and promote collaboration on this important issue. This is the inaugural event to launch the Youth Mental Health Community of Practice.
