headspace Frankston is a health service for young people living in the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula region. We colocate  with several other youth services and also outreach to the Mornington Peninsula.

If you wish to access any of our services, give us a call on (03) 9769 6419.

All our services are free and confidential.

If you are experiencing mental health issues, concerned about your use of alcohol and other drugs, need support getting into work or study or need an STI check, we can help!  

We accept referrals from family, friends, schools and agencies.  As we are a voluntary service, we need the permission of the young person.

Our building is fully wheelchair accessible

To see our GP's, you will need a Medicare card.  Bring it with you to your appointment if you can.  If you'd like to apply for your own Medicare card, go to:  bit.ly/medicarecard

Community Awareness Activities

headspace Frankston receives a large number of requests from the community, yet we have very limited resources. Therefore, we must prioritise requests according to the areas of greatest need, staff availability, demand and fair and equitable coverage of the local community.

Priority is given to the following local organisations:

  • Schools & education providers (eg. Community VCAL, university students)
  • Youth organisations
  • Our partner organisations
  • Community organisations, charities and not-for-profits with a youth and/or mental health focus
  • Family & Carer support organisations

Requests from other types of organisations will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

We are unfortunately not able to fulfil all requests. Allowing at least 10 weeks notice will increase the likelihood of us being able to fulfil your request. 

Depending on what type of organisation you are, our community activities are mostly free or low cost. Some requests may incur larger fees to cover part or all of our costs due to the nature of the activity (for example, requests from commercial organisations, weekend and evening requests, specialised content etc).

Once you have submitted your form our team will review the request and aim to respond within 10 working days.
