In mid-2019 the Federal Government announced an allocation of $3.5 million over four years to establish a new headspace centre in Kununurra. WA Primary Health Alliance is responsible for the commissioning and contract management of all headspace services in Western Australia and for commissioning the delivery of mental health services for young people through the headspace network.

The new headspace centre aims to improve mental health outcomes for young people aged 12-25 years with or at risk of mild to moderate mental illness through a highly accessible, youth friendly integrated service hub that responds, at a minimum, to mental health, general health, alcohol and other drug and vocational concerns of young people.

As part of the process to open the new headspace centre, we are consulting with as many stakeholders as possible to ensure we get the service right and it helps young people across the region.

We are seeking your input to make sure:

  • The headspace model is effective and inclusive for young people and families in Kununurra / East Kimberley
  • Young people and healthcare providers in the region are aware of the headspace centre and services offered


About headspace

headspace is an enhanced primary care model that addresses the unique barriers that young people face accessing mental health support. With a focus on early intervention, headspace provides young people (12 - 25 years old) and their families with support at a crucial time in their lives – to help get them back on track and strengthen their ability to manage their mental health in the future.

Support is available through 100+ national headspace centres, online services and clinical programs across Australia. All headspace centres are funded by the Australian Government Department of Health. WA Primary Health Alliance works closely with the centres, lead agencies, and their consortia partners in our region, in supporting ongoing improvements to accessibility, integration, quality and effectiveness.
