About Headspace

headspace Centres act as a one-stop-shop for young people who need help with mental health, physical health (including sexual health), alcohol and other drugs or work and study support.

Our 100+ centres are designed not just for young people, but with them, to ensure they are relevant, accessible and highly effective. As a result, no two headspace centres are the same, with each offering unique services that reflect the needs of its local community.

National Telehealth Service

In regional and rural areas, getting access to expert psychiatrists is difficult. Our National Telehealth Service addresses this, by providing 12-25 year olds in these areas, access to highly-skilled psychiatrists via video consultations.

The low cost service ensures young people get high quality mental health care, while continuing their treatment within their local community.

Headsapce Online and Phone Support

Headspace offers a range of online and phone mental health support options for young people, their friends and family. They offer a confidential and secure space where young people can web chat, email or speak on the phone with a qualified youth mental health professional. By registering for an account young people can access 1-on-1 clinician support, online community chats, interactive tools and self-help information.

Headspace Vocational Services

headspace recognises the importance of work and study in a young person’s life. headspace Vocational Services support young people to reach their work and study goals– all in a confidential, online and youth-friendly environment.

Our Work and Study service is clinically integrated and supports young people whose work and study activities have been impacted by mental health. Young people work one-on-one with a Vocational Specialist to find, maintain or re-engage in work and/or study. Our Career Mentoring service offers young people the opportunity to work with an industry mentor who acts as an independent sounding board to support their journey into employment. Our services are young person led, strengths based and voluntary—helping young people to take control of their work and study futures.

Headspace Schools

headspace Schools provides youth-specific mental health education tools and access to mental health specialists for young people in primary and secondary school students across Australia. Through training and education, school staff and parents can better support students experiencing mental health issues.

With a focus on early identification and intervention, headspace Schools builds mental health literacy and resilience in the school community while establishing referral pathways to general practitioners and mental health clinicians.
