Wellbeing Support Services
YDHS offers a range of social work and welfare services as part of the Primary Health Care department.
Our social workers can provide support and information in response to issues such as financial hardship, family violence, addiction issues, feelings of sadness, worry and confusion and advice and support for carers. They can also help with concerns arising from ongoing health issues which can include deteriorating decision-making ability and self-care capabilities.

A referral from your GP is required to access this service.
