Who will I speak to?

The headspace Youth Access Team, who consist of 6 workers, Emma, Melody, Eliza, Nicole, Hollie and Silas are terrific 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 are located at ycentral, and 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.

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 2 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 ycentral.
