Our Mission / Objective

headspace is the National Youth Mental Health Foundation providing early intervention mental health services to 12-25 year olds, along with assistance in promoting young peoples’ wellbeing. This covers four core areas: mental health, physical health, work and study support and alcohol and other drug services.  

Information and services for young people, their families and friends as well as health professionals can be accessed through this website, headspace centres, online counselling service eheadspace, the Digital Work and Study Service and postvention suicide support program headspace School Support. 

Our Services

headspace centres are located across metropolitan, regional and rural areas of Australia. They are built and designed with input from young people so they don’t have the same look or feel as other clinical services. The centres are there to help people access health workers – whether it’s a GP, psychologist, social worker, alcohol and drug worker, counsellor, vocational worker or youth worker.

Services at a headspace centre are either free, or have a low cost. You can ask if there is a cost when you make your appointment. Some services require you to have a referral from a doctor; but don’t worry headspace can help you with this as well. 

The role that headspace centres play in helping young people has been overwhelmingly effective, with 60 per cent of our clients showing significant improvement. The other 40 per cent are still on their journeys and are continuing to receive services at headspace or alternative services.

eheadspace is an online and telephone service that supports young people and their families going through a tough time.

headspace School Support works with schools in Australia to prepare for, respond to, and recover from suicide. It’s an initiative that is funded by the Federal Government (Department of Health). For more information on the service, click here.

The headspace Digital Work and Study Service is an online and phone service for young people aged 15-24 years who need support with their work or study issues. The service can help young people figure out where they want to go and how to get there with work or study. Click here to find out more.

The headspace National Telehealth is for young people aged 12-25 years who are based in regional or rural areas in Australia and are already accessing support at a headspace Centre. This service requires a referral from a headspace centre which allows a young people to speak with a qualified psychiatrist online. Learn more here
