Young people tend to report a higher rate of suicidal thoughts and other health-risk behaviours, such as smoking, drinking and drug use, and many delay seeking help because they fear stigma and discrimination.
Our mental health support services are for young people (12 – 25yrs) with mild to moderate mental health issues. They may be going through a tough time and needing youth friendly support. Whether they are seeing one of our doctors (GPs), health workers or mental health professionals – all headspace staff are experts at working with young people.
Our services cover four core areas:
Visits are free and confidential, and headspace welcomes and supports young people of any ethnicity, culture, faith, sexual orientation and gender identity.
Please head to our contact us page for details for your local headspace centre.
Funding for our headspace centres is obtained on a regional basis through the Primary Health Networks and Medical Benefits Schedule Billing. Each headspace centre is developed in partnership with local Youth Engagement and Commitees (YEC’s), local consortium agencies, headspace national Youth Mental Health Foundation and the PHNs.
Inner peace is the new success.
Health is the new wealth.
Kindness is the new cool.”
