Some things to know
Services at headspace Rosebud are free and confidential.
Before the first appointment, the young person will receive a text to confirm. When they arrive at the centre, they will be asked to fill in a survey via a tablet.
Any worker met with will find out the young person’s wants and needs and help with the next steps. If you require any assistance to access our services, please let us know.
We promote family inclusive practice. Young people are encouraged to consider the involvement of a family member, friend or a significant support person as an important part of their care
Collection and use of your personal information
YSAS (including the headspace Frankston and headspace Rosebud programs) needs to collect personal information from you (such as personal, family and medical details) so we can give you quality health care, and we need your permission to collect and keep this information.
A relationship of trust and confidentiality between you and your workers is important.
In our commitment to your care, and by law, we must ensure that your information stays private.
As part of this care plan, your worker may recommend that you are referred to a health professional or program. In this case, your worker will discuss this plan with you, and get your agreement before giving any of your information to another party.
We will also not disclose any of your information (including whether or not you are a client at YSAS) to members of your family or other individuals enquiring about you, unless you agree to this.
We appreciate confidentiality is very important, but there are times when we may have to share certain information, for example if you are at risk of being harmed by yourself or others, or there is a legal requirement. If this is the case, we will endeavour to discuss and explain this with you first, before any information is given out.
You can withdraw or change your consent at any time, but this may limit the services available to you. Your worker will be able to help you with this, and explain the process to you – it’s YOUR information, so it’s YOUR choice!
Consent to collect and hold your information
I understand that I can withdraw or change my consent at any time.
I have read the information for the collection and use of my personal information and understand why my information must be collected.
Some of the participating agencies are also required to comply with the Freedom of Information Act 1982. I understand that I do not have to give information, but if I don’t this might limit the range of services available to me.
I understand that I can ask to see the information collected about me, and can ask for changes if I believe it to be wrong. I understand that I may not be given access in some cases, but I will be told why. I understand that if my information is to be used for any reason other than the above, I will be told why and given an opportunity to consent, if I agree.
