Early Intervention and Support


The Department of Human Services (DHS) has a number of programs and initiatives to support and assist young people who are experiencing difficulties. This can include not having stable accommodation, dealing with the Police or problems with drugs or alcohol.

For more information about intervention and support programs for young Victorians, including:

  • The Finding Solutions Program
  • The Adolescent Support Program
  • Youth Mental Health Services
  • Drug services for young people

head over to the DHS's Early Intervention and Support Page (new window).

If you feel like you need to talk to someone straight away, you can always call Kids Help Line (new window) on 1800 55 1800 or Lifeline Australia (new window) on 13 11 14.
