Since 2006 when the headspace journey first began, we have prided ourselves on using feedback from the people we represent and their family, guardians, and or Friends to make us locally relevant and up to date with the hottest issues.
Just as the Youth Reference Group lets us know what's happening in the schools, The Friends & Family Reference Group helps us understand what it's like for the people at home looking after young people with Mental health issues.
We also provide support, information and advice in a fully inclusive environment and are always open to ideas from our community.
