Youth Health Policy Community Conversations

YouthHealthPolicyReport180418The Child and Youth Health Network, WA Department of Health developed the WA Youth Health Policy 2018 – 2023 (the Policy) in consultation with the young people across the state.

Throughout September and October 2017, community conversations were held across metropolitan, regional and rural WA. Young people aged 13 to 24 from a range of priority populations highlighted in the draft Policy were invited to participate in these community conversations. 

122 young people attended the community conversations to express their views and perspectives and have a say about what is important to them about youth health and wellbeing. Feedback from the community conversations was themed into the following seven key themes:

  • Youth focused approach
  • Access
  • Service delivery
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Education
  • Health information and promotion
  • Technology

Find out more about the themes in the WA Youth Health Policy Report on Community Conversations.
