Teen Mental Health First Aid Training

The Teen Mental Health First Aid Training is aimed to improve the  general wellbeing of students and to provide them with the knowledge and skills to identify when their friends might be going through a difficult time and how to approach and support their peers who are experience mental health issues.

Every year, MYST has trained and accredited facilitators in this program who deliver the Teen Mental Health First Aid Program to students in various year groups across the Four major High Schools  as well as private schools in the Blue Mountains.

Court Support

Provides court support with one of our Youth Work Team Members who are available on-site each week at the Katoomba courthouse.

Breakfast Club

MYST provides Breakfast Club to High schools in the Blue Mountains to ensure that students are getting the good start to the day that they need to keep them engaged in the classroom and to reduce anxiety and other behaviours that impact their wellbeing and learning. It also help MYST Youth Workers engage with students who may need additional support.

Community Events and Holiday Programs

MYST organises special events and activities throughout the year to engage local young people and their families and provide them stronger community connections and  fun activities that they would not otherwise access. These include Youth Week Events, holiday programs and Family Fun Days Fun Days plus much more.
