1st Birthday Celebrations
Since we opened our doors on the second of May 2016, we have supported over 700 young people in the centre, as well as receiving and providing support for over 1400 referrals.
A fun celebration on Friday 5 May saw headspace and South East Sydney Local Health District staff, Youth Reference Group members, partner organisations, representatives from local schools, and the community connecting and acknowledging the growth and contribution that has been made by the headspace team over the first 12 months of operation.

Youth Reference Group member Isa (above) gave a heart warming speech, acknowledging the contribution of the various parties in making the Centre such a success, including the SESLHD staff, headspace staff, Youth Reference Group (YRG) members, and consortium partners.
Centre manager James thanked the YRG members, who have met fortnightly for almost two years, and has contributed to all aspects of the service, from vetting the architect's brief, to choosing décor in the centre, sitting on staff interview panels, and commenting on policies and procedures. Their contribution has been invaluable! A new YRG starts next week, and we look forward to their contributing to the centre in new ways.
