How old do I have to be?

headspace provides services to young people between the ages of 12 and 25 and their families.

 

Do my parents need to come with me?

Although we feel it's great if parents can come and support you, we also understand this may be difficult sometimes for many reasons. Therefore your parents don't have to attend headspace with you. You may want to bring someone else that you feel comfortable with, or you can also attend by yourself if you chose to. If you’re 16 or under we will require consent from a family member or guardian.

 

How much does it cost?

headspace services are free of charge.

 

Do I need a referral to come?

No you don't need a referral, if you are between the ages of 12 and 25 just give us a call and talk to one of the team to see how we can help.  You can also ask a friend, teacher, parent, other family member, health worker or community agency to contact headspace for you; However we will need to speak with you to get your consent.

 

Do you tell people what I say?

At headspace we take your privacy very seriously and anything you say to us is confidential. If your information needs to be given to other people or organisations we will ask you for your permission. The only time we would talk to someone else without your permission is if you tell us that you are going to hurt yourself or someone else, or if we are required to by law. Keeping you and other people safe is our main concern.

 

How do I make an appointment?

Beyond Gambling - Youth Video Project (Click to show below) (Click to hide below)

The headspace Rockingham Youth Reference Group and other young people from the community have created a short video to raise awareness about gambling.

This youth-led project hopes to start a conversation about the way that gambling can impact young people and where they can get support.

 

Gambling involves risking something of value [such as money,  iPod, or jewellery] on an event in which the outcome is uncertain [you don’t know if you’ll win or lose].

This could include activities such as buying a lottery ticket, placing a bet at the greyhounds, footy tipping, making bets while playing cards at home, or playing games at the casino or online. 

 

Gambling has become very ‘normalised’ which means that a lot of young people don’t question the way themselves or their mates gamble.

Although it may start off as fun and games, gambling can end up affecting things that matter, like your mental health, relationships, finances, or your study and work.

 

If you are concerned about yourself or someone you care about, it’s worth talking about.

Call headspace Rockingham on 6595 8888 to find out more about our services.

You can also get support online at Gambling Help Online at www.gamblinghelponline.org.au or for over the phone support call 1800 858 858.

 

Here are some tips to help you and your mates play safe:

  • Balance gambling with other healthy activities
  • Play for fun, not just for money
  • Set limits of time and money spent
  • Know what’s legal to play
  • Never borrow money to play
  • Bet only what you can afford to lose
  • Gamble only with money set aside for entertainment
  • Never gamble when stressed or feeling down 
  • Avoid mixing gambling with alcohol or other substances
  • Don’t take your credit card when you gamble
  • Know when to quit, don’t chase your losses
  • Remember that everyone loses over time
  • Know where to get help

 

This project has been funded by the Department of Racing, Gaming and Liquor, and the Department for Communities through the Beyond Gambling Grants Program.
