In December last year, Sonder was proud to have been announced as the preferred provider for the headspace Adelaide and the headspace Youth Early Psychosis Program (hYEPP) by the Adelaide PHN.

headspace centres provide early intervention, mental health and general health services to young people aged 12 to 25.

Sonder CEO, Sageran Naidoo said the news was “warmly welcomed”.

“We are excited about this new opportunity to help a new population of young people,” Naidoo says.

Contract negotiations, including a robust transition process have been finalised and Sonder will operate the headspace Adelaide centre and hYEPP service from Monday 1 July.

Sonder has operated the headspace Edinburgh North centre for the northern Adelaide region for in excess of ten years and later assumed the role of lead agency for headspace Onkaparinga in Adelaide’s south in 2018.

 “Over the past 25 years of operation, we have earned a solid reputation for the provision of high quality, evidence-based psychological therapy services that are relevant to the complex needs of young people in the local communities in which we operate”, explains Naidoo.  

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

In addition to the headspace core services, headspace Adelaide also offers a unique early psychosis program, supporting young people experiencing, or at risk of developing psychosis.
