HOW TO REFER:
Self-Referral: Young people are encouraged to make contact with headspace Goulburn directly. Call (02) 4824 4944 within office hours or email firstname.lastname@example.org. A worker will contact the young person to make a phone intake appointment within 1-3 days.
Drop in: Young people can call into headspace Goulburn (13-17 Verner Street) between 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday. Staff will endeavour to see the young person the same day, or the next available appointment will be offered.
Professional Referral: GP’s, Allied Health Professionals, community-based agencies and educational institutions can all refer young people to headspace Goulburn using the Service Providers Referral Form. General Practitioners should include a mental health care plan (if appropriate) for the young person and attach this to the headspace Goulburn referral form.
Family Referral: Families, carers or friends can refer a young person to headspace Goulburn. The young person needs to be aware of and consent to the referral and be willing to meet with a member from the headspace Goulburn team. Once receipt of referral has been confirmed, a worker will contact the young person within one to three working days to make an appointment. Families, parents or carers who have a young person engaged with headspace Goulburn can also access our centre to discuss service provision.
