Provider selected for new youth mental health services

Posted on March 7, 2024

Experienced mental health service provider EACH has been selected as the lead agency to deliver two new headspace youth mental health services in Tasmania.

Primary Health Tasmania (Tasmania PHN) is overseeing the establishment of a statewide youth early psychosis service and a new headspace centre on Hobart’s eastern shore, and announced on 7 March it had selected EACH to operate these services.

The free services are funded by the Australian Government under the Primary Health Networks Program.

Primary Health Tasmania spokesperson Alison O’Neill said EACH was selected following an open tender process which attracted a strong field of applicants.

“EACH has a strong track record in the delivery of community-based mental health, counselling, health, disability and housing support services in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and the ACT,” Mrs O’Neill said.

“The organisation will work with young people, local communities and agencies as well as Primary Health Tasmania, headspace National and Orygen to establish and operate both services.”

The services are expected to be gradually established between late 2024 and 2026.
