Creating Headspace in NSW

An exciting new initiative is being lead by Southern NSW Medicare Local to establish a Headspace service for young people in Queanbeyan. How is this different?

It has been the community development approach taken by this agency to create a consortium of services from all over the southern NSW and ACT regions to deliver both funded and inkind support for this service. It may have taken a year in the making but opening the centre is due towards the end of November. A tale of how a group of dedicated services can make things happen with little resources!
