Client Wellbeing Survey (h.A.P.I.)
As part of providing support, headspace will need to collect and record personal information about you that is relevant to your situation.
The personal information will be recorded in a secure headspace database called headspace Applications Platform Interface or hAPI.
Each time the young person attends headspace, they will be asked by reception if they would like to complete a hAPI Client Wellbeing Survey on an IPAD.
These surveys are voluntary so if they don't feel like completing them each time they come in, then they don't have to. The client can also choose to skip questions or sign out at any stage during the survey.
The information will be used by headspace staff in their sessions with you to help provide you with the best support possible. It will also be used by headspace National Office to evaluate, conduct research and report on how well headspace is providing health services to young people.
Client's names will be removed and comb These activities will help us understand the characteristics and needs of young people using headspace services to make our service better. The data that will be used or disclosed by headspace for evaluation, research and reporting purposes will not identify individuals.
If you have any questions regarding the hAPI Survey, please ask our friendly staff.ined with information from other young people attending headspace. The information collected will be securely stored. Headspace staff will always ask for your permission before sharing this information with headspace National Office.

How old do I have to be?
headspace provides services to young people who are at least 12 years old and under 26 years old. We also offer some services for their families.
What happens when I go to headspace?
The first time a young person comes to headspace, they will:
- Complete a registration form
- Read through a Consent to Service form
- Complete a brief survey (HAPI client satisfaction)
- See a Youth Access Clinician for a first face – to – face appointment (60 minutes for an average appointment but can range from 30 minutes to 90 minutes)
After the Youth Access Clinician has completed their assessment they will work with the young person to a “Support Pathway.” This may include appointments with various workers at headspace Midland, and/or other services in the community.
- The “Support Pathway” will be presented at an Intake Meeting which consist of different clinicians at the centre. This meeting is used to discuss each young person coming through to decide on what's best for the young person going forward.
- The Youth Access Clinician will then make contact to advise the recommendations from the intake meeting. If the client wishes to go with a different plan, the Support Pathway can be altered.
- As headspace is a voluntary service, if a young person chooses not to engage and attend appointments we will respect their decision.
Support pathways can include:
- Brief intervention and problem solving with one of our qualified Allied Health Practitioners from a number of different teachings including: Psychology, Social Work, Occupational Therapy and Art Therapy.
- Early intervention and supportive counselling with one of our Youth Access Clinicians
- Access to a GP and/or nurse for physical and mental health issues
- Vocational assistance
- Alcohol and other Drugs Counsellor
- Family counselling
- Participation in headspace workshops
- Referral to hEP (headspace Early Pyschosis)
- Referral to another agency best suited to the young person’s/family’s needs
At times there may be a variations to the above as we understand that every person’s presentation and story is different.
Is there a cost to access headspace Midland?
No, there is no fee associated with accessing any of our services at headspace Midland.
Do I need a referral or Mental Health Care Plan? Can anyone refer to headspace?
A mental health care or formal referral is not necessary, anyone can get the referral process started for the young person including a self referral. However, it is up to the young person if they wish to engage with our service.
Do I need a Medicare Card and if so how do I obtain a Medicare Card?
You don't necessarily need a Medicare Card as there are different support pathways at headspace Midland. Only one of the pathways will require a Medicare Card. A Medicare card lets people get a range of medical services and prescriptions at a lower cost, and free care as a public patient in a public hospital. Please use the links below to assist with obtaining a Medicare card:
Our team at headspace Midland are more than happy to help you navigate the Medicare system, all you need to do is give us a call on 9274 8860.
Can I choose to see only a female or male clinician?
Yes, we want you to be comfortable with who you see. Let us know what your preferences are so that we can link you in with someone that will work well with you.
Can I choose to switch clinicians?
Yes, everyone works differently so its about finding the right "fit". If you don't feel like you are making a connection with the clinician you are seeing, please let us know and we can look at other clinicians that will be better suited.
Is my information confidential?
When you talk to a headspace worker what you say is kept confidential. This means nothing you say can be passed on to anyone else without your permission however there are a few exceptions.
If headspace is seriously worried about your safety or the safety of someone else they must – by law – try to keep everyone safe.
This means they might have to share their concerns with someone else. Talk to your headspace worker about confidentiality to ensure you understand how it works.
If you need immediate medical attention, call 000 or call Lifeline on 13 11 14 or Kids Helpline on 1800 55 1800.
What if I'm not ready for a face - to - face appointment?
The first step is making contact with headspace either by phoning, emailing, sending a letter or dropping into the centre. Once you have made contact, reception will process the information and send it through to the Duty Officer. The Duty Officer will then make contact with you through your preferred method of communication. The Duty Officers are clinicians at our centre so it you don't feel like coming in for an appointment, they will be able to provide support over the phone or by email.
What are the wait times like?
Once initial contact is made be the client or referrer the admin team will submit the information through to the Duty Officer. The Duty Officer usually makes contact anywhere between a few working days up to 3 weeks at times. The first face – to – face appointment is booked in for 2 – 6 weeks after the triage call if headspace is the best option for the young person.
*Please note that wait times can vary due to: complex / risking referrals coming through that take priority, short staffed, public holidays and other centre closures etc. We do aim to assist you as soon as we can.
