Corporate and governance

headspace provides early intervention mental health services to 12-25 year olds, and is committed to good governance and contributing to the discussion around mental health in Australia’s young people.

Research shows that 75 per cent of mental health disorders emerge before the age of 25. By treating these issues early and providing a holistic model of support, the risk of them developing into more serious problems, including suicide, is greatly decreased. 

The success of headspace has been recognised internationally with the model being replicated in other countries. 

headspace is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health.
