    The first visit includes an assessment using the HEADSS psychosocial health tool that provides an overview and identifies points for intervention in discussion. The nurses provide youth focussed health assessments, screening, treatment, information and referral. A visit to YPHS will be up to 60 minutes to allow adequate time for the assessment. 

    The Young People’s Health Service is part of Frontyard’s integrated intake and assessment. Any young person seeking health care will be linked to the service.
