Youth Engagement and Treatment Team Initiative (YETTI)

In 2017 CYMHS welcomed the commencement of the Youth Engagement and Treatment Team Initiative (YETTI). 

This team, contracted by Eastern Melbourne Primary Healthcare Network, provides mental health support and treatment to young people aged 12 - 25 years of age and their families/carers who do not meet the criteria for tertiary mental health care but whose needs are greater than can be provided by primary health. 

YETTI receives referrals from partner agencies in primary care (e.g. Headspace)
