We're proud to support the mental health and wellbeing of young people in Bass Coast and South Gippsland through our headspace Wonthaggi centre.
headspace National Youth Mental Health Foundation provides tailored and holistic early intervention mental health support to 12 to 25 year olds. headspace centres act as a one-stop-shop for young people who need help with mental health, physical health (including sexual health), alcohol and other drugs or work and study support. A national network of 110 headspace centres operates across metropolitan, regional and rural areas of Australia, along with a range of satellites, outreach and support. headspace also operates eheadspace, online and phone counselling service which supports young people who are not able to access a headspace centre or would prefer to get help online. Since 2006, headspace has supported more than half a million young Australians to strengthen their wellbeing and manage their mental health.
headspace Wonthaggi provides services from a central hub in Wonthaggi, in conjunction with five outreach locations in Cowes, Foster, Korumburra, Leongatha and Wonthaggi.
The centre provides free or low-cost confidential support services to help young people with any concerns they have about their mental health, drug and alcohol issues, work and study, general and sexual health, and relationships. Our services include a GP clinic, sexual assault counselling, generalist counselling, drug and alcohol assessment and referral, group work, disability support, family counselling, vocational guidance, help with job seeking as well as health and wellbeing services for all young people.
headspace is committed to embracing diversity and eliminating all forms of discrimination in the provision of health services. We welcome all people irrespective of ethnicity, lifestyle choice, faith, sexual orientation and gender identity.
