Youth Focus has expanded Western Australia’s first face-to-face youth web counselling service across the Wheatbelt, allowing greater access to mental health support for young people in the region.

The ground-breaking initiative, which is now available in Northam, Dalwallinu, Moora and Merredin, offers free, confidential therapy with experienced mental health clinicians through a secure video conferencing platform.

In May, Youth Focus launched the program, targeting select country areas to increase the availability of counselling services for young people living in remote and regional towns. Youth Focus General Manager of Operations Emma Brierty said Northam, Dalwallinu, Moora and Merredin had been identified as priority sites under the first phase of the program.
