Abstract
Background: Young people aged 12-25 years are poorly serviced by current Models of healthcare; they are under represented in Medicare data and are poor seekers of healthcare. However, the majority of mental health problems commence during this age span, significant sexual health issues arise, and there is poor compliance with treatment for chronic disease. Objective: This article describes a holistic, multisector primary healthcare delivery model which may provide a way forward to improve both access and outcomes for young people. Discussion: The 'headspace Gold Coast' model incorporates the relationship the young person has with both the organisation and the individuals within it; a focus on social and vocational rehabilitation; and a team based approach. The model provided at headspace serves an unmet need for young people in urban settings. However, more and ongoing support is crucial, including options for integration into existing primary care.
