headspace Albany was invited to provide health advice at the Binar Futures Health Embassy



headspace Albany was invited to be a stall holder at the 2024 Binar Basketball Carnival and Health Embassy. Hosted by Binar Futures and the Great Southern Basketball, the event was held on the weekend of the 20th and 21st of January.

Over 400 young people from all over the Great Southern filled the courts of the Albany Leisure and Aquatic Centre (ALAC). This allowed us to reach young people – aged 12-17 – from Gnowangerup, Perth, Geraldton, Napier, Kalgoorlie and Esperance.  

The embassy allowed young people playing in the Carnival to access health advice and participate in health activities. headspace Albany provided educational material on mental health and raise awareness of the health services available to young people.  

We ran an activity helping young first nations young people identify social and emotional wellbeing supports such as family, mob and activities that give them joy.


The end result was a beautiful page full of colour representing the young people who took part in the carnival.  


The page will be displayed at our centre, so feel free to come in and see it.
