(3) The Office for Mental Health and Wellbeing are in the process of procuring a provider to scope the requirements for the online youth navigation portal. It is anticipated this provider will commence in January 2020.

(4) The Online Youth Navigation Portal will consolidate mental health and wellbeing information for young people into one location. It is anticipated to have a triage function that will allow an individual to be supported (via individualised online and phone services) to access the right information and/or service. This will remove significant barriers experienced by young people, their family members or friends when seeking help for mental health concerns.

The online resources and triage function will provide a clear pathway to assist an individual to make an informed decision as to when to seek support online or in person or which service in the ACT is the most appropriate for their needs.
