Young people experiencing housing instability or homelessness are at greater risk of mental health problems compared to their peers. Without a fixed address, accessing mental health services becomes much more challenging.
The Health Fund provides young people with individually tailored counselling support to help them manage their mental health. This helps young people to cope with traumas, to engage better with the services available and to improve their emotional wellbeing and resilience.
