From Monday 30th March all headspace staff will be working remotely from home. We are still open for business and will continue to provide services to our clients and community, however different arrangements will be in place to keep everyone safe. All our appointments will be delivered through online and digital platforms. Your worker will speak to you about this and you will be given more details of how to access this when you get your SMS appointment reminder. You can still call us and you can still make referrals to all our programs. We understand that these are difficult times for everyone and encourage you to speak to your worker or contact your nearest office if you have any concerns.
