headspace Morwell provides health care and support service for young people aged 12 to 25 years. We can help answer questions or concerns about your mental health, drug and alcohol issues, general health, relationships, or about your sexuality.

We have youth workers, counsellors, drug and alcohol withdrawal workers, and a Centrelink worker who can answer questions you might have. We can also help your friends and other people who support you. All of our services are free and confidential and our building is fully wheelchair accessible .

You don’t need a referral to get a service, you can just call or drop in when you feel comfortable. To see a GP, you will need a Medicare card.  Bring it with you to your appointment if you can.  If you'd like to apply for your own Medicare card, go to:    bit.ly/medicarecard   .  

In our drop in centre you’re welcome to use our computers or WiFi and make yourself a hot drink.  If you’re ready to speak to someone, we’ll make you an intake appointment. Then we can decide together what you may need help with, and how we can help you.
