Our YAMBI program supports young people aged 12-21 years in the Deception Bay area.

YAMBI works with young people in several ways: Providing support and pathways to find the right services to meet needs, Working with young people to achieve their goals, Working with young people when intensive support is needed, Helping young people and families work through challenges and relationships.


DBay Well

Looking after your mental and physical health

DBay Well is an opportunity for young people (12-21 years old) to connect with our Youth Services team over a free cooked breakfast, and to start seeing if you’d like to work with us to address any health issues you might have a concern about. We know it can be difficult to find a doctor, access Telehealth appointments (what even are they!!), or find a counsellor to speak to. Our Youth Services team can link you up with a GP for any thing from flu vaccinations to new scripts, or help you find a mental health worker to support you with coping strategies. We can do this at DBCYP, your place, or somewhere that feels safe for you!
