headspace Ballarat supports young people aged 12-25 in Ballarat and surrounding areas.
headspace centres act as a one-stop-shop for young people who need help with mental health, physical health (including sexual health), alcohol and other drugs or work and study support. Our youth and support workers are empathetic, friendly, professional and non-judgemental—wherever you are in life, they will endeavour to support you to achieve optimal health and wellbeing. Check out the general headspace website or the headspace Ballarat page for more information.
headspace works with you to find out what kind of support you need, but generally provides services in the following areas:
- mental health
- sexual health
- work & study
- doctor (GP)
- alcohol & drug
- youth reference group
headspace Ballarat is operated by Ballarat Community Health. All headspace services are funded by the Australian Government Department of Health. Administration of funding is carried out by the headspace centre’s local Primary Health Network, in this case, Western Victoria (Western Victoria PHN).
