headspace Gosford is operated by Central Coast Local Health District. 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, Hunter New England and Central Coast (HNECC LTD).

headspace Gosford is located at ycentral, on Mann Street, opposite Gosford Train station. 
It is a friendly free service for young people aged 12-25 years

When you or your parent/carer come to headspace Gosford you will first speak with one of our headspace Client Services Officers, Cathy, Noni or Kiara. You may then be referred to our headspace Youth Access Team who will make an appointment for you if you have phoned or dropped in.

After you have seen our headspace Youth Access Team they may refer you to one of the youth friendly GPs located at ycentral. ycentral has 3 GPs who can see you to discuss your physical health, and they can also talk with about "what's up" in your life and can refer you to counsellors who are also located at headspace @ ycentral. So that means you don't have to go anywhere else as you can see the headspace Youth Access Team, the doctor and counsellors all at the one place.
