Tell me about the role…

headspace Connect is a pilot service operating as part of the wider eheadspace multi-disciplinary mental health model. Combining online and telephony, eheadspace Connect clinicians provide therapeutic mental health support to young people, who are referred to us by a local headspace centre. 

The therapeutic intervention to young people is delivered via teleweb utilising a collaborative care plan approach alongside a use of digital interactive resources.  Clinicians will work within the headspace Connect clinical service model to provide collaborative, person centred therapeutic support to young people experiencing mental distress.
