headspace Alice Springs is operated by Central Australian Aboriginal Congress. All headspace centres are funded by the Australian Government Department of Health. Administration of funding is carried out by the headspace centre’s local Primary Health Network, in this case, Northern Territory (Health Network NT).

headspace Alice Springs provides FREE and CONFIDENTIAL services to young people 12-25 years old. We provide mental health, alcohol and other drugs counselling and a Doctors clinic for physical and sexual health. We have a team of youth focus health professionals available to help you out for a range of issues.

headspace  values the opinions of young people by seeking feedback from the Youth Advisory Group on how we do things and to make sure we are aware of what issues are happening locally for young people in Alice Springs. These young people support headspace by attending community events, forums and advocating for mental health issues. If you want to be a part of YAG call us for an info pack!
