More than 75 per cent of mental health issues develop before a person turns 25. headspace began in 2006 to address unique barriers that young people face in accessing mental health support and to bridge a critical gap in the sector by providing tailored and holistic mental health support to 12 – 25 year olds. With a focus on early intervention, headspace works with young people to provide support at a crucial time in their lives – to help get them back on track and strengthen their ability to manage their mental health in the future.
With over 3 million occasions of service provided, headspace has helped thousands of young people get vital support through their headspace centres (124 locations nationally) and online and phone counselling services.
