headspace Orange is a youth-friendly FREE service for anyone aged between 12 and 25 years who has a Medicare card. No Medicare card? No problem - here is a link to a fact sheet on how to obtain a Medicare card. Not eligible - no fear, most of our services are still available without a Medicare card.
The services you access at headspace Orange will depend on what your needs and goals are. Your first appointment will be with one of our Youth Care Coordinators. They'll talk with you about what's going on in your life and help work out what your options are. You'll have the opportunity to access general health, mental health, drug and alcohol services and vocational support.
