Recently WA Charity Direct learnt of a great program – Peel Youth Medical Services, operated by the not for profit community organisation GP down south.
Peel Youth Medical Service (PYMS) aims to promote wellness by improving the mental, social and physical health of young people aged 12-25yrs in the Peel region. PYMS is located in central Mandurah and currently provides over 400 appointments per month with 40% of these presentations being for mental health related conditions. PYMS offers a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary service with General Practitioners, a Mental Health Social Worker, Sexual Health Nurse, Registered Nurse and a Psychologist on site and provides linkages to other youth health services in the region.
WA Charity Direct donated funds to ensure that this unique and vital service is continued in the Peel Region.
