#manninghamneedsheadspace for Youth Mental Health

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Calling all young people and their families!

Help us raise awareness for the mental health crisis that our young people are facing and help us call for a headspace in Manningham.

headspace is an Australian non-profit organisation that provides youth mental health services to 12-25 year-olds.

We welcome the recent Commonwealth Government commitment of $1 million a year for four years for a headspace service in the Menzies area. This commitment has come about following years of advocacy by council and the community.

However, it is not over yet! We want this service to be based here in Manningham, where we believe the demand is greatest and the impact most beneficial.

We currently have no headspace service in Manningham and need one for several reasons:



“Having a headspace in Manningham will ensure our young people can access mental health services without transport barriers,” said Mayor Cr Michelle Kleinert. We need to secure a dedicated headspace service in Manningham to support our young people, now and into the future.


What action are we taking?

We will deliver a range of activities to raise awareness of the issue and advocate for a local headspace service including:

  • Engaging young people in Manningham via an online survey
  • Engaging community input using the ideas board
  • Meeting with the Manningham Youth Advisory Committee
  • Posting on social media
  • Raising awareness through print and digital newsletters
  • Locally distributing informational posters and flyers
  • Hosting information stalls in the community

We want to hear from young people and their families as we work with local youth, the Manningham Youth Advisory Committee, schools, sporting clubs and community organisations to develop and deliver a range of advocacy activities.

We need a strong case study for our community's demand for a local headspace.


Get involved
