headspace Warrnambool is operated by Brophy Family and Youth Services Inc. All headspace centres are funded by the Australian Government Department of Health. Administration of funding is carried out by the headspace centre’s local Primary Health Network, in this case, Western Victoria (Western Victoria PHN).

Welcome to headspace Warrnambool

headspace  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.

We're in the Community & Youth Complex with other Brophy services like homelessness services so there's even more ways we can help, all in the one spot. 

You're welcome to bring a friend or family member with you.
