Welcome to headspace Coffs Harbour.

We help young people aged between 12 and 25 who may be going through a tough time in the Coffs Harbour region of NSW.

headspace Coffs Harbour is a free, youth friendly confidential service. We have GPs, psychologists and youth workers available for appointments, or you can drop in any time between 9am and 5pm and we'll do our best to help you.  If we can't provide the support you need we'll do our very best to link you up with a service or someone who can!       

We work in consultation with the HARG! - headspace Advisory Reference Group. Our HARG is made up of young people from the local area who are passionate about mental health and helping others through the delivery of high quality, appropriate youth services. The group meets regularly to give us their opinions and ideas on how we can be a better, more youth friendly service. They also help us to organise and run events for young people in the community. Contact us to get involved, we are happy to have new members. The more the merrier!
