headspace CEO Jason Trethowan said it was entirely fitting that a town with such a rich Australian history as Broken Hill, was the site of the 100th headspace centre.
headspace Broken Hill centre manager Rynnette Gentle said the local community were honoured to be able to open the centre doors as the 100th headspace.
Federal Member for Parkes, Mark Coulton said headspace Broken Hill would provide important assistance for the younger residents in this region.
“This centre continues the work of the Australian Government that is focused on preventative health services and providing teenagers and young adults with affordable, youth-friendly mental health services,” he said.
The Western NSW Primary Health Network CEO Andrew Harvey said the centre has been funded and supported by the Western NSW Primary Health Network to meet an identified need for more mental health services in Broken Hill.
