headspace Port Macquarie   is a  FREE  youth health service for young people aged 12-25 years. At headspace , young people have access to a variety of experienced friendly staff. These include psychologists, social workers, youth workers and doctors.   Our centre has disability access and is located in the heart of the CBD, opposite the beautiful Hastings River.  Free parking is available and directly outside our door is a busways bus stop, No:1bb. 

Some of the reasons young people come to  headspace Port Macquarie include fights with family or friends, past or current concerns about bullying, relationship break-ups, mental health issues (such as depression or anxiety), problems at school or work,  physical and sexual health concerns, issues with alcohol or drugs... and many more.
