Youth Psycho-Social Support

Youth Psycho-Social Support (YPSP) is designed to assist young people with mental health challenges, with or without co-occurring alcohol and drug issues to participate more in their community, social and economic life.

The personalised program offers a variety of support services that help meet individual goals and needs, including support with everyday skills, maintaining safe accommodation and accessing other services.

Contact your Pillar representative to organise a meeting.

Anglicare WA’s Service Offer 

As part of the program, you will be able to choose the service you would like to support you. Anglicare WA is one of the services supporting young people accepted into YPSP.

Our aim is to improve your wellbeing and help in your recovery, supporting you to become more independent and have better quality of life.

With our support, and other formal or informal supports, you will be able to develop an individualised recovery plan. The plan is a guide to how you would like to be supported to live well in the community.

How we provide our range of services

Our team includes Peer Workers, Youth Workers and specialist support staff, such as a Drug and Alcohol Worker and Employment Projects Officer.

Our team guiding principles include:

Youth Work WA’s Code of Ethics - A tool for supporting quality youth work practice, and for clarifying what youth work is about – both for youth workers themselves, and for those who come into contact with youth workers.

Trauma Informed practice – Understanding that a significant number of young people accessing support services have been exposed to multiple or ongoing experiences of trauma.

Youth-centred and Youth-friendly – We place the person, group or community who receives the service at the centre of determining what supports they need and how they should be delivered.

Strengths-based – We recognise there is great diversity in the youth population and acknowledge each person’s unique perspectives, strengths, skills and needs.

Fiercely Inclusive – Supporting a broad range of young people, including people from culturally and linguistically diverse communities, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, intersex (LGBTI) people, people with disabilities, and their families and carers.
