Bathurst mental health facility to provide more help for local youth

Youth mental health services in the Bathurst region will be greatly improved following the opening of a state-of-the-art child and adolescent mental health facility by the Minister for Mental Health, Kevin Humphries. Housed in the recently refurbished former dental clinic building on the grounds of the Bathurst Hospital, the "Willows" youth mental health facility will ensure more help is available for young people in the Bathurst region with a mental health issue.

"The $250,000 refurbishment and expansion of the existing facility will ensure more space is available to provide additional support and activities aimed at improving the social and emotional wellbeing of children, teenagers and their families," Mr Humphries said. "The new service at Willows will offer community based assessment and treatment options close to home that will aim to intervene as early as possible to provide the best possible recovery outcomes for young people in the Bathurst community."
