Holistic Youth Program (HYP)


Introducing the Holistic Youth Program (HYP) - supporting young people living with severe mental illness


headspace Bankstown has officially launched the Holistic Youth Program (HYP), which can be seen as a 'step-up' to headspace's "mild-to-moderate" services, by supporting young people living with, or at risk of, severe mental illness. 

HYP aims to support young people with multidisciplinary team care, inclusive of a mental health clinician and peer worker, to help support them in their recovery and reduce long-term mental ill health. 

Core components and underlying principles of the model are informed by Orygen, which works to reduce the impact of mental ill-health on young people, their families and society. 

Young people aged 12-25 years can be referred to HYP through our centre's regular referral pathways by calling us on (02) 9393 9669, emailing, visiting us in-person or sending through a referral form.
