youth education sessions

Dr YES (Youth Education Sessions) is a school based health initiative run under the auspices of the AMA (WA) Foundation. The program sends specially trained volunteer medical students into metropolitan and rural high schools to have open and engaging discussions on topics concerning youth health - specifically mental health, sexual health and alcohol & other drugs.

This program both complements and adds to the school health education curriculum and aims to help break down the barriers that may prevent young people from accessing health care.

For more information about the Dr YES program, its learning outcomes and what the sessions involve, please download our Adobe Acrobat Required Teachers' Guidebook.
