Christchurch's 298 Youth Health

rebrands as Te Tahi Youth

An esteemed health specialist believes the government needs a wake-up call around investment in health care for young people, or face further "funding crises".

Dame Sue Bagshaw's longstanding youth health centre 298 Youth Health in central Christchurch is being rebranded Te Tahi Youth.

The facility, founded by Bagshaw back in 1995, is the only spot in the city where 10-24 year olds can access free medical, sexual, mental health, wellbeing and employment services.

The youth health doctor is also stepping away from "day-to-day" operations after three decades, to focus on the impending Christchurch Youth Hub.

Speaking at a launch event on Thursday, Bagshaw delivered a warning to the government around investment in young people.

"It's about time [they] realise that young people need different health care from adults.
