headspace Hervey Bay provides free to low cost* health services for young people 12-25 years old on the Fraser Coast. We are an inclusive service and does not discriminate regardless of race, cultural background, religion, sexual orientation, gender, or disability.
headspace Hervey Bay is about making sure that young people on the Fraser Coast have the best support, access, information and services for their health and well-being.
It's about support for general health, mental health, drug and alcohol issues, and employment and education support. With the help of its dedicated youth friendly staff of Psychologists, Counsellors and Intake & Access workers, headspace Hervey Bay has become a popular one-stop-shop for young people seeking help or advice and their physical and mental health concerns.
