I am so thrilled to announce that I am the new Chair for the headspace Darwin Consortium.

headspace is an organisation that I have always loved and it’s an absolute honour to be awarded this responsibility.

The Consortium is a face to face gathering of representatives from a range of adolescent, mental health and health related services within the Top End. The group provides strategic direction and support to the headspace Darwin service.

I am very excited to lead this group in discussion on youth mental health issues in the Darwin region and to help identify gaps and provide leadership to share ideas on how to meet these needs.

Thank you to headspace for the opportunity. I am very honoured.

headspace Darwin aims to be highly accessible, youth friendly and an integrated service that responds to mild to moderate mental health, general health, alcohol and other drug and the vocational concerns of young people. headspace Darwin aims to provide specialist mental health treatment as well as improving mental health outcomes by reducing help-seeking barriers and facilitating early access to services that meet the holistic needs of young people.
