Mountains of Help
Directory and advice about support services for young people in the Blue Mountains, NSW
Life can sometimes get complicated, and there are times when you need help - help dealing with the law, help finding a safe place to live,
help just getting through the next 24 hours.
The good news is, there’s a huge support network right here in the Mountains. They’re called youth services, and they’re set up
specially to support you.
So, if you know somebody who’s struggling with something, whether it’s school, home, drugs or anything else, chances are there’s somebody nearby who can help.
