All young people meeting these criteria will be considered for acceptance to the service. However, where the young person’s needs may be more appropriately met by another service, the young person and the referrer will be provided with advice and support to access other services.

Young people who are not known to the service who require acute mental health services will be directed to other appropriate services.
