TESTIMONIAL

"The care and support myself and my teenager daughter received from 298 Youth Health has been amazing. I am unsure how we would have coped without their help and guidance. She received support from a youth worker, doctor and counselling services; which helped her understand what she was going through. I am so grateful for their services, experiences staff and ongoing support"
