headspace Berri is operated by FocusOne Health. 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, Country SA PHN.

headspace Berri provides free to low cost* health services for young people 12-25 years old in the Riverland region of South Australia. We are an inclusive service and do not discriminate regardless of race, cultural background, religion, sexual orientation, gender, or disability.

headspace Berri wants to work with you to help you with whatever tough time you're going through, and can link in with other services if needed. Whether you want advice, information or just to have a chat, we're here to help.

It's about support for general health, mental health, drug and alcohol issues, and employment and education support. With the help of its dedicated youth friendly staff of Psychologists, Counsellors, Registered Nurses and Intake & Access workers, headspace Berri is a popular one-stop-shop for young people seeking help or advice for life's challenges.

You can access or refer to headspace Berri by phone, dropping in, or via an emailed or faxed referral form. We also accept Mental Health Treatment Plans referrals from your Doctor. You can find more details about referrals below in the 'More Information' section.

MEET hERO GROUP MEMBER, BRITTNY!

Brit2

Why I joined the hERO group in 2018:
I re-joined because I felt I still had more to give towards the group. I didn’t fulfill the role to my best abilities and I wanted to do better this year and keep aware of things happening in the community. 

My goals and aspirations:
My goals in life are to stay true to myself and make sure I stay on top of my mental health. I aspire to have something in life that I can look back on and be happy with. 

My passions:
I love nature, animals, arts and crafts and learning new things. 

A strength of mine: 
Resilient - The reason I chose this is because I like to think that anyone who can overcome a journey such as mine and still see the beauty in the world is pretty resilient. 

 

MEET hERO GROUP MEMBER, BROOKE!

Brooke4


Why I joined the hERO group in 2018:
I joined the hERO group in 2018 because after being a part of it in 2017 my confidence has really grown and I made connections with people in the community that care about the same issues as me. I joined again because I wanted to continue building my skills, confidence and connections with others. I also want to keep the topic of young people’s health relevant in the Riverland by supporting headspace.

My goals and aspirations:
I would love to work in psychology. I find the way we think and develop throughout our lives so interesting especially now in a constantly evolving world. I want to travel to a couple places overseas and learn some other languages. I have a lot of things I’d love to try at least once but as long as I’m healthy, mentally and physically, I’ll be okay.

My passions:
My passions can change over time but right now I’m passionate about helping people to realise their full potential and beauty. I also love the art of writing and film.

 

MEET hERO GROUP MEMBER, REGAN!

Regan


Why I joined the hERO group in 2018:

The reason I joined was so people can become aware that there are others that care. There are many in need of help, especially those in high school. I want to be someone that can support those people in numerous ways so that they feel there is someone by their side, along their journey. This is where I believe the hERO group will allow me to develop these skills to do so.

My goals and aspirations:

My goals are to prevent bullying all over the Riverland - physical, verbal, social and cyber - To make people feel as though they are in the safest possible environment. Also, to develop the skills needed to help peers with any troubles they are facing.

A strength of mine:

Determined - To succeed in life you have to be determined and focused on what you want to achieve. Determination is being firm on the goal you want to achieve, and this is why I believe this strength best describes me. I am hard working towards what I believe is right and wrong, so all my present and future goals become complete.

MEET hERO GROUP FACILITATOR, KEISHA:

Keisha 3

Why I joined the hERO group as a facilitator in 2018:

I joined the hERO group as a facilitator to try something different from my usual clinical work. I also joined because I wanted to see more come out of the hERO group. I saw potential in the young people that the program was bringing in and I wanted to utilise their skills and resources more, not only to benefit our centre, but to promote growth and development in each and every one of them.

 

My goals and aspirations:

My aim in life is to surround myself with anything that brings happiness into it. My aim is to accept any challenges and plot twists that get thrown at me, and to overcome them by seeing them as an opportunity to grow and further my resilience. 

 

My passions:

Living a healthy lifestyle, which includes looking after my mind and body in different ways, like exercising, eating a balanced diet, meditating, being in a job I love, surrounding myself with the people who make me happy, dancing, volunteering with the Riverland Musical Society and cuddles with fur babies.
