Aboriginal youth health access program an Aboriginal Health Award finalist

A Justice Health and Forensic Mental Health Network-run program was a recent finalist in New South Wales' 2012 Aboriginal Health Awards.

The Aboriginal youth health access program was a program initially run as a trial in Frank Baxter JJC and Kariong Juvenile Detention Centres in New South Wales. It focused on raising the awareness of young Aboriginal people about community health services, including community mental health and related support services.

The program specifically aimed to develop the health knowledge of Aboriginal inmates aged 15-21 years.
