At headspace Knox, we believe there is nothing more powerful than a group of young people who come together to help and support each other.
We encourage all young people to join the groups and workshops on offer at headspace Knox. We have a range of programs that include our regular social groups as well as scheduled threptic groups that occur throughout the year. See below for some of the great programs we currently have on offer and what’s coming up!
headspace Knox and EACH Youth and Family have collaborated to bring you Art’scape
A relaxed art group for young people 12-25 years who are looking to meet others, participate in structured activities, or work on their own projects. Use our materials and space to learn new skills, creatively express yourself, and have some arty fun!
Art’scape is run on a Thursday between 3:30pm and 5pm. For more information see here.
What better way to start off the weekend with a bang then hanging out with us every Friday afternoon. We’ll supply the movies, games, and snacks. You can bring your friends along or meet other young people from the local area. Best of all it is totally free!
Fridays@headspace is run on a Friday between 2pm and 5pm. For more information see here.
