What we do
headspace is the place you go when you need someone else to talk to or to get some support though a tough time.
headspace is there when you may not want your
friends knowing about stuff or when you feel that no one else seems
to get how you are feeling.
And the best thing is - It's FREE

opportunity to have access to a wide range of information about
different subjects that impact on young people including mental
health, drug and alcohol, sex and sexuality, pregnancy and family
planning, and health information.
