We offer heaps of services like: Mental Health and Wellbeing, Sexual Health, Youth Worker Support, Alcohol and Other Drug Services, Connections to Education, Employment and more!
We operate using a “no wrong door” policy which means that no young person will be turned away without being supported to access other services in or outside of headspace.
It’s easy to access our services; just call, email, or drop into the centre.
Our centres are fully wheelchair accessible with ramps, internal lifts and accessible toilets. We can arrange Auslan and other language interpreter support when requested on booking.
More than 75 per cent of mental health issues develop before a person turns 25.
And yet, many traditional services aren’t equipped to address the unique barriers that young people face to accessing mental health support. headspace began in 2006 to address this critical gap, by providing tailored and holistic mental health support to 12 – 25 year olds. With a focus on early intervention, we work with young people to provide support at a crucial time in their lives – to help get them back on track and strengthen their ability to manage their mental health in the future.
At the heart of our services is ensuring we meet the evolving and unique needs of young people and those who support them. Therefore, young people are at the centre of everything we do and they play an active role in designing, developing and evaluating our programs.
Our centres, headspace Lismore and headspace Tweed Heads, are two centres among a network of 110+ national headspace centres across the country.
