Official launch of headspace Katherine

headspace Katherine officially opened its doors today, giving young people aged 12 to 25 access to a youth friendly, free and confidential mental health and wellbeing service.

The establishment of headspace Katherine has been a collaborative process, with young people, families, Elders and local organisations, including local Aboriginal community controlled health organisations, all providing input on the fit out and design of services.

The new service, which is managed by Anglicare NT, is centrally located at the Randazzo Centre on Katherine Terrace.

The service also includes a mobile outreach clinic that will visit the Aboriginal communities of Binjari, Beswick, Jilkminggan and Pine Creek/Kybrook Farm, providing regular clinical services for young people and community education sessions about youth mental health for young people, their families and community members.

headspace Katherine is supported by funding from the Northern Territory Primary Health Network (PHN) and the Northern Territory Government. Anglicare NT acknowledges financial and other support from Northern Territory PHN and the Primary Health Networks Programme – an Australian Government Initiative.
