Based on the work of our friends at headspace Nowra, the headspace Purple Page is made up of a stack of useful resources we've found from many different groups and organisations to support transgender and gender diverse young people.

It includes:

  • Information on pronouns, medical and social transitioning, coming out/inviting in, your legal rights, navigating relationships, sexuality and more.
  • Stories from other gender and sexually diverse young people.
  • Info on where to go to get more information and support online or in person.

The aim of this page is to help you and your loved ones along your journey, no matter what point you are at.

Most importantly, we want you to know that headspace Edinburgh North is a safe place and we want to support you. Call us on (08) 8209 0700 if you would like to speak to someone. We're here to help.

In addition to the resources contained in Purple Page we also run a fortnightly ' Rainbow Mates' group for young people that identify as lesbian, Queer, transgender people or people questioning their sexuality and aged 15-25. Download Flyer

Youth Reference Group (YRG) (Click to show below) (Click to hide below)

At our centre in Edinburgh North, we hope to give young people a voice about the issues that matter to them.

Our Youth Reference Group (YRG) have been having a say in the way headspace works in the Edinburgh North region since 2007 and although some of our original members aren’t so young anymore, youth issues have remained important to us.

We want young people to have their say in how our centre looks and feels, what sort of events they’d like to see in our community, who we employ and what topics we should be tackling with young people. This year, we are looking to recruit new members to support our current YRG.

If you, or someone you know, is aged between 15-25 and has a passion for mental health and community leadership, get in touch with us to apply for a position as a YRG member for 2017-2018. You can contact our YRG coordinators, Steve Wright and Trephina Gartley, via phone on (08) 8209 0700 or e-mail at swright@northernhealth.net or tgartley@northernhealth.net
