What will happen when you I go to headspace Gosford?

When you or your parent/carer come to headspace Gosford you will first speak with one of our headspace Practice Support Officers, Cathy, Noni or Kiara. You may then be referred to our headspace Youth Access Team who will make an appointment for you if you have phoned or dropped in.

Who will I speak to?

The headspace Youth Access Team, consisting of Emma, Melody, Nicole, Hollie and Silas are great in talking with you to find out "what's up". They will help you find the service that you need (including GPs and Youth specific counsellors) who may be located at headspace @ ycentral and/or across the Central Coast. They have a great knowledge of what services are out there to help you and your family/carer find exactly what you need.

Other services located at headspace Gosford include:

  • Centrelink Outreach Service
  • Wesley GITS "Getting It Together Service"

What will happen next?

After you have seen our headspace Youth Access Team they may refer you to one of the youth friendly GPs located at ycentral. ycentral has 3 GPs who can see you to discuss your physical health, and they can also talk with about "what's up" in your life and can refer you to counsellors who are also located at headspace @ ycentral. So that means you don't have to go anywhere else as you can see the headspace Youth Access Team, the doctor and counsellors all at the one place.
