headspace GPs work with young people aged 12-25, providing holistic care across a wide range of physical, mental and sexual health issues, playing an important role in supporting young people at a pivotal time in their lives.
Our GPs work with young people around mental health, sexual health, drugs and alcohol, preventative healthcare and other physical health problems. We have a collaborative and holistic model of care at headspace. GPs are supported by a team of experienced youth healthcare experts, including psychologists, psychiatrists, dietitians, social workers and mental health nurses.
"The best thing about working at headspace is being able to deliver holistic care to young people and have the time to address multiple issues at one appointment.
