A place for young people and their families to talk through things when times are tough.
headspace Newcastle can provide you with information and support on a wide range of issues. Our headspace Newcastle centre is a place where young people, aged 12-25, and their families can come and talk to people who are specially trained to help young people deal with a range of problems including:
- mental health
- physical health
- sexual health
- family and relationships
- feeling stressed or not being able to stop worrying
- drug and alcohol issues
- school stress or work hassles
- not feeling like yourself
- looking for work or training
Did you know?
One in four young people have experienced a mental health issue in the past 12 months – this rate is higher than all other age groups. For some young people, the challenge can feel unfixable, with suicide the leading cause of death among Australian youth.
Research shows that 75% of mental health issues emerge before the age of 25. By treating these issues early and providing holistic support, the risk of them developing into more serious problems greatly decreases.
We aim to turn these figures around, promote change and continue to develop services unique to young people in Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and Port Stephens.
