Did you know that less than 50% of the children with mental health conditions receive the services they need? Western Youth Services is changing that. Our ACT/Outreach and Engagement (O&E) North location is in need of volunteers. Outreach and Engagement identifies those that have fallen through the cracks with a gap in care and provides individual support and case management in homes, schools and other public places, ensuring that services are accessible and provided to those that need them.
