Youth Focus, as the lead agency, opened headspace Midland in January 2013.
headspace is a national initiative with centres across the country in metropolitan and rural and remote locations.
headspace Midland provides support to people 12-25 years who are experiencing difficulties in any area of their lives including; physical health, mental health and wellbeing, alcohol and other drug issues and vocational support (education, training and employment).
The message is if you or someone you know is experiencing distress in any area of their lives or seeks information our access workers can provide prompt support to help service users make sense of their experience and assist them to access the help they need.
In addition to direct service provision headspace actively participates in relevant health and wellbeing promotion and community engagement and training activities.
Our team includes Social Workers, GP’s, Psychologists, Psychiatry, Mental health workers, Drug and alcohol workers, Vocational officers and Counsellors.
While referrals from any referrer are accepted young people do not require a referral and can walk in or contact by telephone. For further information please contact headspace Midland on (08) 9274 8860, or by our website: http://www.headspace.org.au/headspace-centres/headspace-midland or on facebook at: www.facebook.com/headspacemidland.

It is Youth Focus’ aim in conjunction with headspace National and a range of government and community managed service providers to extend quality services to people 12-25yrs in the North Eastern Region of Perth that are inclusive, accessible and informed by the service users.
