Planning for Mosman's Youth

Posted Monday 30 April 2018

Mosman Council’s Youth Services team is reviewing the findings of its comprehensive youth consultation which identified the most significant issues for young people who live, work and play in Mosman.

Key recommendations of the MyVoice Consultation report included addressing the importance of rest for mental health and sustained success, providing a safe space where young people can find information and support and opening communication lines between parents and young people.

Mosman Youth Services will be working with young people to put the consultation findings into action and are sharing the results with other local stakeholders who are living and working with youth. The full MyVoice Consultation report can be viewed on the Youth page of the website.

Major concerns for young people identified in the report include academic pressure, closely followed by body image then alcohol, along with drugs, smoking and peer pressure.
