headspace Murray Bridge is operated by Murray Mallee GP Network. All headspace centres are funded by the Australian Government Department of Health. Administration of funding is carried out by the headspace centre’s local Primary Health Network, in this case, Country SA (Country North SA PHN).

At headspace Murray Bridge we provide a youth-friendly, community-based health service for young people and their families. headspace Murray Bridge is one of the smallest headspace centres in Australia, operating in a regional and rural environment since April 2008 and servicing up to 500 young people per year.

We offer a range of support services including no cost medical services and youth activities for young people. headspace Murray Bridge also co-hosts community events and youth activities with The Station Youth Centre, visits other community events and schools in the Murraylands region.

headspace Murray Bridge can help young people aged 12-25 and their families to deal with different problems. They can access help from experts who have specific expertise in working with young people, such as Allied Health Youth Workers, Psychologists, Telepsychiatry, Vocational Worker, Alcohol and Other Drug Counsellor and General Practitioners.

Family Inclusive Program (Click to show below) (Click to hide below)

Our headspace team has been developing ways to work more closely with family and friends of headspace clients to ensure the best service to the young people we see.

about the Family Inclusive Program

Our team is well into an 18 month project to assist with the Family Inclusive Program. This project has been funded through a Service Innovation Grant from headspace National Office.

This project will allow our staff to increase ther expertise in working with families and change some of the ways we assist young people. The new Family Inclusive Program is being evaluated via a research team with the aim to develop a model of family inclusive work that can be used by other headspace centres across Australia

Family Inclusive Program in Murray Bridge

At headspace Murray Bridge we have always looked for oppourtunities to support family and friends that are supportive of the young people we see.

We are currently offering a family/friends inclusive intake session to all young people attending headspace for the first time. Individual intake sessions with a youth worker will continue to be avaliable for thse young people who prefer no family involvement. Young people and their families may opt to receive support via one family session only. We will also provide oppourtunities for our ongoing clients to have family/friend involvement in their care if they agree to this option.

further support for families and friends

If further support is required, there continues to be a variety of options, such as seeing a youth worker for individual or further family sessions, or consulting with one of our Psyhcologists in Private Practice, GP, or Psychiatrist.

If it is decided that we are not he best service for the young person or their family at this time, we will refer on to the many other agencies we consult with in Murray Bridge.

Family Inclusive Program feedback

The new family inclusive intake option will be continually reviewed with feedback from clients, family and workers to assess the ongoing benefit and sustainability to the young people we see.
