At headspace Lismore we help young people aged between 12 and 25 who are going through a tough time.

headspace Lismore operates a “no wrong door" policy. This means that no young person will be turned away without being supported to access other services in or outside of headspace .

We offer heaps of different services that are free like: Mental Health & Well Being, General & Sexual Health, Youth Worker Support, Alcohol & Other Drug Services, Connections to Education, Employment & so much more!

It's easy to access services at headspace Lismore! Just call, email, or drop into the center. Our reception staff or a Youth Access Clinician will grab some information from you, and would be happy to provide you with some information about headspace , show you around and/or complete an appointment form.

We work in consultation with our Youth Advisory Group (YAG). Our YAG consists of young people from the local area who are passionate about helping other youth in the community by ensuring the delivery of high quality youth services at headspace Lismore. If you are interested and want to get involved, come in or email mseely@headspace-lismore.org.au for more information.…
