Raising awareness for youth mental health is a vital part of what headspace does. Take a look through the range of campaigns we’ve shared with the Australian public to help build mental health literacy for young people, their friends and families, reduce stigma and encourage young people to seek help for mental health issues.
In support of young people with mental health issues, headspace day is a national day of awareness aimed at ensuring every young person in Australia has access to mental health services no matter where they live.
The Big Stigma
1 in 4 young Aussies will experience mental health issues and most of them will not seek help. There are many reasons why, although stigma plays a major role. To combat stigma, headspace encourages all Australians to talk more openly about mental health issues, which makes it easier for young people to seek help for them.
Is there a lot going on? If you feel like there is too much happening clearing your head can help. There is no shame in talking it out. headspace is your space to yarn safe.
A lot of things go unsaid between young men and their dads. The headspace Fathers campaign aims to open up the conversation between fathers and sons and raise awareness about the support services available.
