headspace During COVID-19: Here for young people

headspace is here to support the mental health of our young people during COVID-19

COVID-19 is creating feelings of uncertainty within the community.

In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have put rigorous hygiene and physical distancing measures in place at our headspace Centres (headspace Adelaide, Edinburgh North and Onkaparinga) to ensure the safety of young people, family and friends, and staff working in the Centre.

During this time, we are operating a combination of in-person, online and phone services.

We strongly encourage young people who are feeling unwell or experiencing mild respiratory symptoms (runny nose, sore throat, cough or fever) to please phone before coming in.
