South West Connect (SWC) are facilitating a partnership between various community organisations with a focus on mental health entitled the Mental Health Alliance Partnership.  

The Alliance plan to hold a Youth Mental Health Forum which aims to provide young people with the skills to identify mental health issues, the knowledge of the resources available and to assist in ultimately removing the negative stigma attached to the issue. This forum is based on a successful model that has run in other regions throughout NSW.

Earlier in the year SWC contacted all schools in the Fairfield and Liverpool region. As a result of our consultation the Alliance agreed to move forward with the Youth Mental Health Forum.
