  • What makes you happy?

    The YRG at headspace Queanbeyan want to share the positivity so they are running a “What Makes You Happy” photo project. They have started a photo board (which they hope will soon double in size) for people to share pics of things that make them happy. They are inviting all young people to submit photos and be part of the project. Young people can bring in a pic and add it to the board, or email it to info@headspacequeanbeyan.org.au and I will arrange for them to be printed and added.

  • Dog Space goes National!

    Dog Space goes National The headspace National Forum was on 20-21 March in Melbourne with 900 headspace staff from around the country participating. At the forum headspace Queanbeyan show cased our DOG SPACE group – a fortnightly group where young people get to hang out for an hour with Delta Therapy dogs. We were lucky enough to have Delta Dogs come to the forum to interact with participants and show them first-hand how hanging out with a therapy dog can have a positive impact on well-being. We were lucky enough to win a $1000 prize for this showcase (who doesn’t love dogs!). Since the forum we are excited to hear of a number of headspace centres around the country starting up their own versions of DOG SPACE. Good luck to you all. DOG SPACE meets from 4-5pm at headspace Queanbeyan on the second and fourth Mondays of the month. If you would like to receive text message reminders on the day DOD SPACE is on – let us know.
