More than 75% of mental health issues develop before a person turns 25.
And yet, many traditional services aren’t equipped to address the unique barriers that young people face to accessing mental health support. headspace began in 2006 to address this critical gap, by providing tailored and holistic mental health support to 12 – 25 year olds. With a focus on early intervention, headspace works 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. Headspace is supporting Australians during the COVID-19 crisis. They state “with all that’s happening in the world with coronavirus (COVID-19), there is a lot of uncertainty. If you’re feeling overwhelmed or stressed by what you’re hearing and seeing, it’s OK to feel this way”.
