About Neami Hawthorn YRRS

Neami’s Youth Residential Recovery Service (YRRS) is a mental health recovery program delivered in a residential setting, designed for young people aged 16 to 25.

Who is this for?

Eligibility criteria varies for our different programs. Please contact the service directly to discuss whether our programs are suitable for you.

What to expect

Young people live on site while undertaking the program for a negotiated time (for a maximum of 12 months). During this time, we work with you in key areas of self-development so that you feel capable and confident to live a life that has meaning and purpose.

Some areas of self-development can include:

  • Self-responsibility
  • Understanding behaviours and emotions
  • Self-care
  • Enhanced coping skills
  • Independent living skills.

Our YRRS program may also assist you to develop and maintain links with your local community, family and social networks, and support you to pursue educational and vocational opportunities.

The service is run by a multi-disciplinary team of community support workers, including people with a lived experience of mental health recovery and a service manager.

How to access this service

We welcome referrals from mental health professionals or other health care providers. Referrals must be discussed with the individual prior to making the referral.

We encourage referrals for people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, refuges and people who identify as sexually and gender diverse.
