How to get support?

It’s important to remember that we can only work with young people who are keen to engage with us. To get support, you or your young person call us on 02 6113 5700 or drop into our Braddon office.


We support people aged 12-25 with mild to moderate mental health issues. Young people who are experiencing moderate to high mental health issues can access CatholicCare Next Steps High, Woden Community Service or CAHMS.

Should we come to headspace or find a private psychologist?

If you can afford private mental health support, go with this option. It's good to leave headspace free for young people with limited financial support.

Tuning into Teens

The Tuning in to Teens program helps parents and carers to understand and communicate with their young person, manage emotions and deal with conflict.
