Meet our YAC team at headspace Miranda

Our team of YAC's aka Youth Access Clinicians provide young people with an invaluable service at headspace Miranda. They are the first person a young person will speak with when visiting our centre and work with a young person to give them the support they need.

They wanted to share a little bit of information about themselves, how they look after their own mental health and why they love working at headspace Miranda.
