headspace is the National Youth Mental Health Foundation providing early intervention mental health services to 12-25 year olds. The service is designed to make it as easy as possible for a young person and their family to get the help they need for problems affecting their wellbeing. This covers four core areas: mental health, physical health, work and study support and alcohol and other drug services. The services can be accessed through headspace centres, online counselling service eheadspace and postvention suicide support program headspace School Support. headspace centres are located across metropolitan, regional and rural areas of Australia. Each centre can help with mental health, physical health (including sexual health), alcohol and other drug or work and study issues.

Our vision is to help create healthy resilient young people. As well as our clinical support services which includes; doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, youth workers and drug and alcohol counsellors, we believe we have a role in Community Development.
