Mental Health

headspace

12-25 Years

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:

Mental health and wellbeing
Physical and sexual health
Work and study support, and
alcohol and other drug services

Visits are free and confidential, and headspace welcomes and supports young people of any ethnicity, culture, faith, sexual orientation and gender identity.

Some of the reasons people visit us include:
Feeling anxious or stressed
Problems with family and friends
Issues in romantic relationships
Questions about sex
Questions about gender and who you are attracted to
Bullying
Anger
Help with finding a job or getting into study
Physical health (including sexual health) concerns
