headspace is the National Youth Mental Health Foundation, funded by the Australian Government to provide early intervention mental health services to 12-25 year olds.
“We know there is a strong need for services, including mental health services in Sale and the new headspace satellite service will make it easier for young people in Wellington to access support,” said Gippsland PHN Chief Executive Officer, Amanda Proposch. “It is important that young people can access expert health workers and vocational guidance staff in a safe, confidential and youth-friendly environment."
RAV already has significant experience and expertise supporting young people with their mental health, through our headspace centres in Bairnsdale and Wonthaggi, i-Connect Family Mental Health Support Service, and as part of a range of other services we provide.
“We know just how important it is to have young people actively involved in designing and operating headspace services,” said Relationships Australia Victoria Chief Executive Officer, Dr Andrew Bickerdike.
“That’s why we’re establishing a Youth Advisory Group, who will work collaboratively with our staff and consortium members, and play a key role in advocating for the needs of young people in the community and helping to ensure that services are accessible and youth-friendly.”
