Renovations are underway at headspace Onkaparinga

Exciting changes are underway at headspace Onkaparinga! Made possible through funding from the Department of Health, administered by Adelaide PHN, our centre is currently undergoing a significant transformation to enable us to provide a better experience for young people seeking mental health support in Adelaide’s south.

Co-designed with young people from headspace Onkaparinga’s Youth Reference Group, the renovations are designed to expand and enhance our facilities. We are increasing office and staff spaces, consult rooms and common areas to create a more comfortable and inclusive environment for everyone who walks through our doors. 

Since the opening of the centre at this location in 2017, the demand for our services has grown significantly. We have also grown the range of services delivered from the centre, including group-based programs, the headspace Work & Study program and outreach support for headspace Adelaide’s Early Psychosis program. As a result, we’ve outgrown our current space and are in need of a little extra room. 

The renovations are anticipated to be completed by April 2024. During this period, while we are working hard to great a better space, we want to assure young people and their families that headspace Onkaparinga is still here for you. Our services will continue to run, and we will continue to accept referrals for young people seeking support. Appointments will continue as scheduled but young people visiting the centre should expect a slightly different look and some occasional noise disruptions as the magic happens.  

To allow the building work to progress, our centre will be closed for a period of time throughout January. Young people who have appointments scheduled during this time will be contacted by their worker to discuss alternative arrangements which may include switching their appointment to Telehealth or relocating to a different space.  

We are so excited about the positive impact that these renovations will have on your experience at headspace Onkaparinga, and we look forward to unveiling our new centre next year.
