headspace Early Psychosis offers specialist support for young people who are experiencing, or are at an increased risk of developing psychosis.
Psychosis is an experience where a person interprets the world differently to others. They might see or hear things that other people can’t, or have unusual ideas or beliefs. This can affect their thoughts, feelings or behaviour.
Our team is here to support young people and their families navigate this experience and take steps towards recovery.
The Early Psychosis program operates seven days a week (including public holidays) and also provides access to mental health professionals, study and work support, group activities and help for family and friends.
To be eligible for the program, young people will be assessed by our team.
In South East Melbourne, there are five headspace centres that work closely together to offer this program including headspace Bentleigh, Elsternwick, Frankston, Dandenong and Narre Warren.
If you or someone you know could benefit from learning more, please call (03) 9076 9400. You can also read more about early psychosis here.

Our courses are created by people with varied experiences in mental health, who share their knowledge of what works. Every course is developed and delivered equally by both people with lived experience of mental health issues and health experts, and participants also have their say about what they want to learn. People from all sorts of backgrounds take part, like young people, clinicians and learning specialists.
It’s a new way of learning about mental health – it’s relaxed, everyone is equal and there are no rights or wrongs. By getting involved, you can discover how to take action to be who you are, what you want from life, and what actually works to help you and others stay mentally healthy.
