headspace National Youth Mental Health Foundation
headspace is the National Youth Mental Health Foundation providing early intervention mental health services to improve mental health outcomes for young people aged 12-25 years with or at risk of mild to moderate mental illness. headspace centres aim to be highly accessible, youth friendly integrated service hubs that respond, at a minimum, to mental health, general health, alcohol and other drug and vocational concerns of young people. The services aim to improve mental health outcomes by reducing help-seeking barriers and facilitating early access to services that meet the holistic needs of young people.
We work closely with headspace national office and directly fund four headspace centres in the Brisbane South region.

Early Psychosis Youth Services
The Early Psychosis Youth Services (EPYS) program through headspace Meadowbrook provides integrated early intervention treatment and intensive support to young people aged 12 to 25 years who are at ultrahigh risk of, or are experiencing, a first episode psychosis. This program aims to provide a single point of entry for comprehensive evidence based treatment and support, as well as ease of access to varying levels of intensity of care for young people and their families, replacing often fragmented treatment and support pathways.
