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 .

headspace Frankston is operated by YSAS. All headspace centres are funded by the Australian Government Department of Health. Administration of funding is carried out by the headspace centre’s local Primary Health Network, in this case, South Eastern Melbourne (South East Melbourne PHN).
Mental Health Services
Mental health workers – which may include psychologists, psychiatrists, counsellors and other workers – that can help if you're just not feeling yourself.
Sexual Health Services
Sexual health screenings on site or links to local services.
Work & Study Services
Workers either on site or linked to the centre who can assist you with work or study opportunities.
Youth Reference Group
A group of young people who help with events and some decision making at a centre. Ask your centre about getting involved.
GPs can help with any physical health issues as well as issues related to sexual health, drug or alcohol use, relationship problems or feeling down or upset. Your centre may have a GP on site or links to one locally.
Alcohol & Drug Services
Workers either on site or linked to the centre who can assist you with any alcohol or other drug issue.
Youth Early Psychosis Program
A headspace early intervention program to improve the lives of young people, and their families, who are affected by psychosis.
Centres have a range of programs and activities for young people. Just ask your centre what they have on.
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.
