Youth Health

Promoting health and wellbeing in the youth work sector

The National Youth Health Programme (NYHP) is a partnership between the National Youth Council of Ireland, the Health Service Executive and the Department of Children and Youth Affairs.

The NYHP is dedicated to developing and promoting a culture within the youth sector which focuses on health and wellbeing by building the capacity of the youth workers and volunteers. NYHP also acts as a conduit between grass roots experience and the development of public policy and national strategy in the area of youth health and wellbeing.

MENTAL HEALTH SIGNPOSTING

In response to this need a Youth Mental Health Signposting tool was developed.
