Youth-focussed (16-24 years)

Mentis Assist, in partnership with other service providers, delivers the Frankston Youth Prevention and Recovery Care (YPARC) program. This is a clinical short stay community residential centre for young people experiencing psychiatric and/or emotional distress. It is a step up or step down service, which supports young people being discharged from hospital (step down) or can be an alternative to them being admitted to hospital (step up). Through this partnership, Mentis Assist provides a specialised group work program for these young people both in-house and in the community.

Mentis Assist is also co-located at the Frankston Headspace to support young people through specialised group work and outreach support. Mentis Assist Youth Practitioners work in collaboration with other youth-focused service providers to facilitate wrap around care and streamlined referral pathways that support easier access for our mutual clients.
