Description of charity's activities and outcomes
headspace provides tailored and holistic mental health support to 12-25 year olds. With a focus on early intervention, we work with young people to provide support at a crucial time in their lives – to help get them back on track and strengthen their ability to manage their mental health in the future. At the heart of our services is ensuring we meet the evolving and unique needs of young people and those who support them. Young people are at the centre of everything we do and they play an active role in designing, developing and evaluating our programs. In the reporting period key activities headspace delivered included: national leadership and support services to the headspace network of 102 headspace centres - enabling 88,500 young people to access a headspace centre, providing over 382,000 services; eheadspace online and telephone support nationally to over 33,000 young people; support to school communities impacted by suicide through our headspace in Schools team. During the year the headspace in Schools team also became the service delivery partner for beyondblue to deliver the Be You national education initiative, providing mental health literacy training and support to primary and secondary schools; vocational support services to over 400 young people through the headspace Digital Work and Study service and supporting mentoring services; telehealth services enabling access to psychiatrists for young people in regional and rural areas across Australia; direct operation of headspace Adelaide and co-located headspace Youth Early Psychosis Program.
