services | yAdas
Delivers proactive, integrated and culturally relevant clinically based programs/partnerships and relationships to engage the young Aboriginal community with a focus on early intervention, education and harm minimisation around substance use and mental health issues.
yAdas is a free, confidential service that works with the young Aboriginal community, aged 12-25, in the Northern Tasmanian region, including the Furneaux Islands. Cornerstone Youth Service works with Relationships Australia: Tasmania in delivering this service.
The yAdas team has been working with a group of young Aboriginal students at Port Dalrymple School in Georgetown each week with the aim of providing a holistic approach to drug education.
yAdas has been engaging school groups with a variety of different activities designed to boost self-esteem, encourage cooperation and team work, bolster positive and effective communication skills and provide education around alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.
The group has learned to support and encourage each other through adversity as the yAdas team have tested their responses to stressful situations on our adventure days. These days have included activities like caving, abseiling, mountain biking and hiking.
