About

 

COVID-19 Update:

Our centre is currently providing phone & online services only meaning we have fully transitioned from in person services to phone & online. Please contact us via phone to learn more.

headspace Portland is a free youth-friendly counselling service for young people aged 12-25 years. We can help if you are going through a difficult time, or just want someone to talk to.

We can also support you with referrals to other services if needed, including youth drug and alcohol services,  youth homelessness services, family and relationship support and general physical health. 

You can find us at Active Health in Portland. Our centre has full disability access (DDA compliant).
