COVID-19 update: Due to COVID-19 and headspace Canberra transitioning from in-person to phone services, this service will not be available until we are back operating from our centre in Braddon. If you would like further information about our services in the interim, please contact us on 02 5109 9700.


Same Day appointments are now available at headspace Canberra!

Same Day appointments are one off individual appointments with a mental health worker that focus on a current issue in your life. Please note that no follow up care is provided. These appointments are available to young people between 12 and 25 years of age and accompanying carers.

Up to three Same Day appointments are available per year at no cost.

When: Same Day appointments are available each Monday and Friday at 10:00am, 11:00am and 12:00pm

How: To book a Same Day appointment, you must walk-in to headspace Canberra to secure a booking on the day of the appointment. You may call us on 5109 9700 to check availability but you cannot book over the phone

Same Day appointments are not a mental health crisis service and are not suitable for those experiencing a mental health crisis. Please call Access Mental Health on 1800 629 354 if you are experiencing a mental health crisis.

Same Day appointments are suitable for those trying to access counselling, not currently supported by mental health service or those who are currently on waitlists and talking about your concerns might help.
