Overview

headspace Parramatta provides face-to-face information, support and services to young people, aged 12 - 25, and their families and friends. We can help with mental health, general health, alcohol and other drug services as well as work support. We also have a specialised service for young people who are experiencing a first episode or at ultra-high risk of psychosis.

Young people aged 12 - 25 do not require a formal referral. Simply phone, email or show up in person to arrange an appointment with one of our staff during business hours.

New referrals and walk-ins welcome between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday. Bookings are required for appointments after 5pm on weekdays and on Saturdays.
