ACU helping YSAS provide health care to young people
Published: Monday 19th March 2018
The ACU/YSAS Murray to Moyne cycling team are hosting a special screening of Isle of Dogs at the Westgarth Cinema in Northcote (Victoria) at 6:30pm on 12 April.
This is the same day it premieres so attendees will be among the first to see what will be a hit movie of 2018. The paltry sum of $35 per head secures a seat at the premiere, a drink and nibbles directly before the film, and supports the fantastic work YSAS (Youth Support & Advocacy Service) do in caring for young people struggling with drugs and alcohol issues.
YSAS is a state-wide community service providing a continuum of services for young people aged between 12 and 21 who are experiencing problems related to alcohol and other drugs. YSAS provides a range of youth specific outreach, treatment, withdrawal, rehabilitation and support programs in 13 locations across Melbourne and regional Victoria.
All funds raised by the ACU/YSAS Murray to Moyne Team go directly to the Primary Health Clinic that operates out of the YSAS Abbotsford site. This clinic provides health care to disadvantaged young people experiencing substance use issues. The clinic provides young people with mental health care plans, sexual health screening and treatment, BBV testing and treatment, skin and wound care and general health support.
