New headspace announced for Whyalla, South Australia

The Federal Government has today announced the location of the latest headspace service that will be located in Whyalla, South Australia.

It is the second service to be announced - of ten new locations - that were promised by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull during last year’s Federal election campaign.

headspace Grafton was announced in late February.
 
headspace CEO Jason Trethowan welcomed the news saying the service will provide a much needed boost to local youth mental health services.
 
“I am extremely pleased that headspace services will now be directly available to the young people of Whyalla and surrounding areas,” Mr Trethowan said.
 
headspace National looks forward to collaborating with Country South Australia Primary Health Network in the establishment of headspace Whyalla.”

Federal Member for Grey, Rowan Ramsey said he was really pleased with the announcement and what it will mean for many local, young people.

“There are more pressures on young people today than ever, and for some, life can become overwhelming,” he said.
