headspace centres are here for you. Whether you need information or someone to talk to – we’ll set you up with expert support.
We have more than 150 centres across Australia. All of our centres are created with young people to make them welcoming – so don’t expect old men in lab coats! Importantly, headspace centre services are all free or low cost and what you say is kept confidential.
How we can help
Whether you’re seeing one of our doctors, health workers or mental health professionals – all headspace staff are experts at working with young people.
They can help with almost anything! Some of the reasons people visit us include:
- feeling anxious or stressed
- problems with family and friends
- issues in romantic relationships
- questions about sex
- questions about gender and who you are attracted to
- help with finding a job or getting into study
- physical health (including sexual health) concerns
- feeling down or depressed
- just not feeling yourself!
What to expect from your first visit
During your first visit we'll aim to get to know you a little better. It's all about setting you up and connecting you with the best support. Here’s what you can expect:
- When you arrive, head to reception and check in.
- We’ll ask you to complete a survey on an iPad. The survey takes about 20 minutes but the information is super important in helping us understand you and the support you need.
- Then you’ll sit down with a headspace team member. This team member will chat with you about your concerns and discuss how we can help.
- A headspace team member will stay in touch over the phone, keeping you updated on different support services. These may be headspace services, or services from other organisations that we know are great for young people.
- Your next visit will be with headspace and/or other services
Anything you say will be kept confidential. If we need to share information as part of your treatment we will always speak to you first.
