headspace Day is an opportunity to support the 1 in 4 young Australians who experience a mental health issue in any given year.

headspace Newcastle is thrilled to be part of this nation-wide event and want to let you know what will be happening here in Newcastle to mark the day.

As part of celebrations headspace Newcastle will be running an Instagram competition based on the concept “When I’m not in a good headspace_______ helps me feel better” The competition will encourage local youth to share ways, places and people that help them through tough times. The prizes for the competition have been selected to reflect the theme; things that help you feel better – café vouchers, concert tickets, clothes vouchers, sporting goods.

As part of the national campaign, headspace is asking all Australians to share what they do to look after their mental health, and we’ve made it easy for everyone to get involved!
