headspace  Warrnambool can help young people aged 12-25 years and their families to deal with a wide variety of problems and get help from experts in a range of areas including:

Doctors - a GP is available most days.  They can help you with general health issues, sexual health testing and advice and sports injuries.

Youth workers and counsellors - If you are feeling depressed, worried or anxious we can arrange for you to see someone to talk it through.

Alcohol and drug workers - If you want to do something about your substance use but don't know how to start.

Education and employment workers who can help get you back to study or work. Tele-psychiatry sessions with specialist psychiatrists.

No Fees; Bulk Billing Available, The doctors & counsellors of our clinic bulk-bill Medicare for services provided. This means that you only need to bring your Medicare Card along to your appointment.
