statement on headspace Israel

Over recent times there has been inaccurate information published online about headspace’s relationship with headspace Israel.

It is important to make clear that headspace National Youth Mental Health Foundation has only ever operated in Australia.

The headspace model here in Australia is a world-leading model and it has been adopted by other countries around the world, including in Israel. headspace Israel, like a small number of other overseas organisations who’ve adopted our model and branding in their countries, have no legal, operational, financial or other affiliation with headspace in Australia.  

headspace National Youth Mental Health Foundation strongly believes that all young people deserve access to services that support them to be mentally healthy and engaged in their communities, so where we are able, we provide guidance and our experience to help establish youth mental health services globally.

We recognise that the humanitarian crisis in Israel and Palestine is impacting the mental health of many young Australians, and we want any young people experiencing distress to know that headspace is here to support them. To reach a trained headspace clinician or for more information, go to or call 1800 650 890.
