do you have a centre I can visit to get support?
headspace Pilbara is the very first centre, without a centre...we are a headspace 'without walls' which means we can meet with young people in a myriad of locations such as schools, recreation centres, cafes...even the beach!
what if I don't live in Newman, Hedland or Karratha and I still want help?
Whilst we don't have Youth Wellbeing Workers in every Pilbara town, just give us a call and we will try to connect you with someone who can assist you.
We also recommend eheadspace.org.au which is online and telephone counselling support and it's FREE and confidential (call charges may apply).
can I bring my friend or family member to the sessions I have with my headspace worker?
Whatever makes you most comfortable works for us.
how much does it cost to see a headspace worker?
Nothing. Nada. Naught. It's all FREE!
do my parents/carers need to know I am seeing a headspace worker?
Having family members aware of your support from headspace is a good thing because they can support you at home as well. Let us know if you want this to happen but aren't sure how to let them know. We've got your back!
