Strengthened headspace Devonport service a step towards better youth mental health outcomes

Posted on November 23, 2020

The recent opening of a full headspace centre in Devonport is a significant step towards securing better mental health outcomes for young people in Tasmania’s north west.

That’s according to Rebecca Wells, an Ulverstone local, and one of the young north west headspace volunteers who helped shape the new-and-improved site.

Doors opened at the new headspace Devonport centre on 3 November as part of an Australian Government-supported expansion of mental health services for young people living in Tasmania’s north west.

A special event was held on 23 November to celebrate the upgrade, up until which Cornerstone Youth Services had been running headspace Devonport as a smaller ‘satellite’ site.
