The Final Evaluation Report for the Neami Macarthur Youth Mental Health and Housing Project (MYP) is now available on our website. The project was operated by Neami National and funded by the NSW Department of Families and Communities.
The MYP ran from March 2011 to June 2014 and was designed to support young people in South Western Sydney who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness and who have mental health issues. The project provided case management and outreach support to young people, as well as working with youth homelessness and clinical mental health services.
Neami partnered with the Social Policy Research Centre (SPRC) from UNSW Australia to conduct the evaluation of the project.
The evaluation report describes the outcomes for young people during the project regarding housing, personal wellbeing, and social connectedness. The report also lists lessons learnt from the project that may be applicable to future service delivery for young people.
You can find the full report in the research section of our website. Also available is an easy to read flyer on the evaluation which provides a brief summary.
