mental health resources for young people in regional communities

There’s a lot to love about living in the country, but it isn’t always easy. headspace can help with a range of support, like peer group chats with people who get what you’re going through.

7 tips for a healthy headspace

Good mental health allows us to live our lives in meaningful ways and cope with life’s changes and challenges. There are a number of things you can do to help you look after and maintain your mental health and wellbeing.

After the Floods

It’s common to need support with our mental health and wellbeing after experiencing a natural disaster, like floods. Watch the stories of regional communities.

Connect with people like you

Regardless of where you are in Australia, you can chat with other young people who get you in headspace’s online peer group chats.

Mental health support

Connect 1-on-1 with a headspace mental health professional via web chat or phone. It’s confidential, free and can be anonymous if you prefer.

Make Work & Study work for you

Get support to develop skills and confidence to reach your goals, find a job, connect with a career mentor, or just get some help choosing what to study.

Create a headspace account

For all sorts of different reasons, many of us might place high and unrealistic expectations on ourselves. We know that many young people also place high and unrealistic expectations on themselves – just like in the 'Unachievys'. That’s why it’s important to try to recognise this, and practice how you can look after yourself and move forward.

We’re all on our own journey, and at headspace, we’re here to help along the way. Create a headspace account to access an online community of young people, join group chats, create your own personalised space, and get professional 1-on-1 support — all online and free.
