Youth Aware of Mental Health (YAM) is an evidence-based mental health program for young people aged 14 – 16 years. YAM gets young people involved and talking about mental health through role-play and discussion. By doing this, they learn problem solving skills and gain knowledge about mental health. YAM is delivered by a trained YAM Instructor assisted by a YAM Helper, who provide young people with a safe and non-judgemental space to explore mental health topics such as stress, crisis and depression.
