headspace day is just around the corner...

This year we will be holding the first inaugural headspace Day! To celebrate headspace Maitland will be hosting a community event with a BBQ and youth friendly activities on Friday October 7 from 11:30am-4:30pm at Maitland Primary School 70 Elgin Street Maitland (Just across the road from headspace Maitland!) Check out the flyer.

headspace is designed to make it as easy as possible for young people to get the help they need for problems affecting their mental wellbeing. Be it face-to-face at one of our 95 centres, over the phone, or online with one of our eheadspace clinicians, young people can be assured that help is at hand.

The theme for headspace day is ‘Access All Areas’. headspace Maitland is a strong advocate for young people accessing free, confidential, early intervention mental health services.

We've got an amazing array of music and activities on the day including tunes and DJ workshops from Newacastle Scratch Academy, A free BBQ cooked by Greenhills Rotary and even a pony to feed and pat facilitated by the Samaritans Adolescent and Family Counsellors!

Big thanks to the services who have jumped on board so far:

It's not too late to join in on the fun! Whether you're a young musician looking for your big break or an organisation for young people - get in touch with the Community Engagement Officer Laura to book your spot - laura.hanlon@samaritans.org.au or give us a call on (02)49311000.
