Aims of the program
In particular, this program aims to support young people between the ages of 12-25 years who may be experiencing more chronic and episodic moderate to severe mental illness and other psychosocial stressors impacting on a young person and their families’ level of functioning.
It specifically targets young people with more complex needs, in particular Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people.
Headspace Extra will provide a longer term level of support involving both clinical and psychosocial support to assist with reducing the impact level of chronic severe mental health impairment on young people and their families.
Any clients aged 12-25 years who are assessed as having chronic and episodic moderate to severe mental illness and other psychosocial stressors, with moderate or severe functional impacts on young people and their families.
The referral pathway into the program is the same as any headspace referral by way of completion of the referral form located on the website https://headspace.org.au/headspace-centres/newcastle/.
It is best to contact headspace on 4929 4201 to discuss the referral with our Support Coordinator Marie.
