Launch of HYE Pathways Online Youth Support Website

The launch of HYE Pathways youth support online forum ( was held on Thursday 9th October, 2014 at Deakin Cats Community Centre. The site is a fantastic initiative born from our Youth Support Worker Ali Abdelkader.

Ali, along with our other Youth support staff member, Chris Lavars, together with our creative partners, Paul Kelly Design to Print, brainstormed this idea over the past 12 months to come up with this great online initiative.

The official site launch at the Deakin Cats Community Centre hosted by Phil Dunn was a huge success; launched with the assistance of headspace, and headspace Ambassador Simon Hogan, to a crowd including students from Belmont High School. The site was also ably demonstrated to the group by Shane Baker, a young man currently using our Youth Services with Chris Lavars. Ali spoke about the benefits for our youth in accessing the website – providing an online space where people can connect with workers, get quick, targeted information and perhaps find a friend or two who knows exactly what they are going through. Further that the website has been created as a friendly, welcoming space for youth to visit; a place to seek help, vent, express frustration and just as importantly share coping strategies and success stories.

Ali is to be congratulated on her initiative and presentation at the launch which thoroughly connected with the audience.  Spread the world on on this great new online support for those aged between 16 - 25.  Follow this link to register for the site or share with friends.

Simon Hogan, headspace National ambassador, will be present at the forum and will speak to the group regarding his lived experience with mental illness. If you are not aware of Simon's story I have listed below a link to a headspace video that gives background to Simon's journey.
