headspace Campbelltown celebrates a decade of helping young Australians

This month marks 10 years since headspace Campbelltown first opened its doors, changing the face of mental health support for young Australians and their families in the Campbelltown community.

Since its inception in 2008, headspace Campbelltown has welcomed more than 5000 young people to their centre.

These young Australians are among more than 450,000 people who have visited a headspace centre across the country.

headspace CEO Jason Trethowan said each headspace centre is created with, and for, young people; ensuring all services, programs and facilities are welcoming and youth-friendly.

“Seeking help for any concerns troubling a young person takes a lot of courage, and headspace has made it easier for young people to come to the one place with all the support they need,” Mr Trethowan said.

“With 75 per cent of mental health problems emerging before the age of 25, we are managing issues early which helps prevent them from becoming more serious and longer lasting.”
