Commonwealth Department of Health and Family Services~~Success Works Pty Ltd.~~~
This report documents & evaluates service provision to young women by the Young Women’s Project & its impact on meeting their mental health needs. Results of the project show young women improved their health status. The Project helped to prevent suicide among participants by responding to immediate needs for accomodation & income support, by building a rapport which encouraged the young women to reveal suicidal feelings to staff who could then intervene, & by using a holistic approach to treatment.
