headspace Lismore supports young people aged 12-25.
We offer heaps of free services like: Mental Health & Well Being, General & Sexual Health, Youth Worker Support, Alcohol & Other Drug Services, Connections to Education, Employment and more!
headspace Lismore operates a “no wrong door" policy. This means that no young person will be turned away without being supported to access other services in or outside of headspace.
It's easy to access our services; just call, email, or drop into the center. Our reception staff or a Youth Access Clinician will grab some info from you, & would be happy to provide you with some info about headspace, show you around &/or complete an appointment form.
