The Youth Health and Wellbeing Assessment Guideline (GL2018_003) presents the current best evidence for conducting a Youth Health and Wellbeing Assessment. Its purpose is to inform practice for healthcare providers to achieve the best possible care in NSW.

This guideline is for clinicians caring for young people (12-24 years old) in a paediatric, adolescent or adult healthcare setting.

This guideline supports NSW Health’s commitment to implement appropriate psychosocial assessment tools, such as HEEADSSS, to assess and respond to the holistic health and wellbeing needs of young people outlined in the NSW Youth Health Framework 2017-2024 (PD2017_019).
