Why ask for donations when headspace is government funded?

The Department of Health continues to fund headspace services, however, if we are to continue the level of community awareness and engagement that we have had in the past we will need to raise funds so that headspace national office can continue to promote the importance of seeking help for mental health issues, to break down the stigma, and make sure every young Australian knows there is help available.

Where do the funds go?

Your donation assists headspace in insuring that every young person in Australia knows that there is help available and promoting the importance of help seeking for mental health issues on a national level. In the ten years since establishment, headspace has provided more than 1.5 million occasions of service and in 2015/16 alone more than 95,000 young people used headspace services including directly at centres or via eheadspace.

Year on year our occasions of service are increasing, with more and more young people seeking support from headspace on a local and national level.

By supporting headspace with your donation you are doing your part to ensure that every young person in Australia has access to a free mental health service, no matter their location. 

What is the fundraising target?

This is our first fundraising appeal. We’ve never done this before so we are in somewhat unknown territory. What we do know is that we have a group or extremely passionate supporters so with this in mind we’ve set a combined fundraising target at $100,000, this may be ambitious but we are dreaming big and would love for you to help us reach our goal.  

Is there a minimum donation amount?

There is no minimum donation amount. Just remember that any donation over $2 is tax deductible.
