About

The health & wellbeing of young people and their families is our top priority.  In response to COVID-19, we have transitioned to online and phone services.

We’ll still be supporting young people through phone and online options which enables a screen to screen approach. This means you’ll be able to use either your mobile, laptop or computer to have screen to screen sessions with your mental health clinician.  

If you feel you need an in person appointment please call us to discuss further. 

You can get in contact with headspace Melton's staff by calling our reception & admin team on 8065 5600 or email : info-headspaceMelton@orygen.org.au .

We’re all in this together and are here to support you.

What does confidentiality mean for you at headspace?

In Australia, laws protect young peoples’ rights to have information they share with doctors (and other people who provide health services) be kept private.

These laws mean that what you tell people during a health care appointment must remain private between you and that person or service, except in particular situations.

When you talk to any of the staff at headspace Melton you can be confident that what you talk about is not shared with people outside of the service without your knowledge. headspace Melton helps you access services that are sometimes provided by other agencies outside of headspace. Please talk with anyone on our Access Team about how this relates to your private information.
