headspace seeks to enhance young people's ability to seek help, and offer youth-centred support and services. At headspace Canberra young people can receive support from a range of professionals including youth workers, psychologists, social workers, and alcohol and other drug workers. These workers will undertake an assessment and counselling can be provided when necessary, usually with a Mental Health Treatment Plan. Group and skill development workshops are also available. headspace generally provides support to young people by appointment.
ACT teachers may also be interested in headspace School Suppport for resources and school engagement support. headspace School Support is an initiative funded by the Federal Government that works with school communities to prepare for, respond to, and recover from the suicide of a student.
