Youth Step Up Step Down Service

The youth Step Up Step Down (SUSD) services will be located in Caboolture and Logan, and will deliver clinical and non-clinical support services to young people with severe and complex mental health issues.

The 6-bed services are provided in a community rehabilitative and residential setting, including care and recovery planning with the young person and their family, carer and significant others.

The SUSD services offer intensive, short-term support for young people to ‘step up’ from the community to reduce the likelihood of admission to hospital care. It also enables timely discharge for young people to ‘step down’ from hospital care to support transition to their home and community.

Youth Step Up Step Down services are expected to commence in 2020.
