Expanding the understanding of low-threshold services for young people

There are various thresholds to accessing mental health and substance use treatment services for young people. The thresholds should be lowered not only in terms of access to the services, but also in terms of attending and benefiting from them. The core of the work with young people in the field of mental health and substance use lies in successful and comprehensive encounters, through which various interconnected problems can be addressed. This Policy Brief presents ways in which those encounters could be supported.
