headspace Edinburgh North New Referral Options

Due to high demand, headspace Edinburgh North and Sonder’s emerge program are temporarily changing how we will deliver services to manage this demand.

Referrals for young people seeking ongoing psychological therapy can be made via your local GP with a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP), who will provide this referral to Adelaide PHN’s Central Referral Unit and they will allocate to a local service provider. 

Young people may still be referred directly to headspace Edinburgh North and emerge for short-term, lower-intensity support provided by a Peer Support Worker with lived experience of mental health issues. Please call the centre on (08) 8209 0700. 

headspace Edinburgh North and emerge are offering a ‘drop-in’ service with the option to check-in with a peer worker or a clinician. This is available on Wednesday’s between 2pm – 6pm.

For anyone over the age of 16 years, Sonder’s Walk-in After-Hours Walk-In Service is also available 4 days a week (Thurs, Fri, Sat, Mon) from 5 pm- 10 pm, with no appointment or referral required.
