Pulse Youth Health South is a health promotion, prevention and early intervention service for young people aged 12-24 years.

The service provides assessment, brief intervention, counselling, advocacy and referral for young people aged 12 to 24.

The service also offers health promotion sessions, which can be either one off sessions or a series of sessions in schools - topics can include mental health, sexual health, relationships, bullying and general health and well-being and sessions can be tailored to the needs of the school/group of students.

Pulse is currently offering schools the opportunity to visit the service and hear from workers about different health topics.

The service also has a small class room that schools can use for sessions on health related topics. Pulse is located in Glenorchy however can provide services throughout the southern region.
