It can feel stressful and overwhelming during an event like the outbreak of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and we can all be affected differently. It’s important to find the right level or type of support for you.
headspace Dubbo has your back. Although we have ceased in-person appointments, we have transitioned our service to online and phone services during regular business hours for young people aged 12 - 25.
If you or someone you know is feeling overwhelmed and needs to chat, you can contact us on 02 5852 1900 or email; firstname.lastname@example.org.
eheadspace is available 7 days a week from 7am – 1am (AEST) for online supports – eheadspace.org.au
Group chats are available daily and allow young people to connect with other young people. Led by a headspace professional, group chats explore a range of helpful topics. They also have chats and webinars specifically for family and friends of young people. You can register anonymously at eheadspace.org.au
Spaces also via eheadspace.org.au, is a place where you can create an account and collect and manage resources to build your own personalised mental health toolkit.

Please also consider ensuring you, or your young person, has a safe and private place to talk. If there are younger siblings at home, keep them busy with other activities so you won’t be distracted and can speak openly and freely with the health professional.
