Dedicated to young adults aged 16-25

We know that with the pressures of today, young adults have it pretty tough. People in this age group are at a stage where they are faced with many choices in a world that sometimes doesn’t seem to understand what they need. 

Some of the more common mental health challenges that may be faced by young adults include depression, anxiety and eating disorders. But there are many more concerns that could be added to this list. Along with these come other problems and behaviours that can impact on everyday functioning, making the most basic of tasks overwhelming.

Most age groups have their own specific requirements when it comes to healthcare and people your age are no exception to this. The Mater Young Adult Health Centre (MYAHC) has been established due to limited services in Queensland dedicated to young adults between the ages of 16-25.

The Emotional Health Unit here at MYAHC delivers specialist mental health care to young adults which is evidence based and consumer driven. The care that is provided by our experienced mental health team is based on the individual strengths of our patients and is focused on their recovery.

Thanks to the generosity of Mr Peter Flynn of the Amanda Flynn Foundation, Mater will deliver specialist inpatient care to young adults who are experiencing anxiety, depression and other mental health conditions at the Amanda Flynn Clinic. In Partnership with ClearThinking Queensland, appropriate models of care for young adults have been created for the Recovery College. 

The Emotional Health Unit consists of:

Amanda Flynn Clinic - Inpatient Unit
