Headspace to the Rescue of Mentally Ill Youngsters

A program called Headspace is being introduced by the Federal Government in Australia to provide early intervention and treatment for youngsters whose mental// ailments have been largely glossed over or ignored.

Establishment of 30 centres across the country in cities and rural spots will ensure that the program will reach even the remote areas.

It will be run under the guidance of the National Youth Mental Health Foundation's Advisory Board, and chaired by Ryan Stokes, a director of Seven Network. Along with other agencies the Oxygen Centre at Melbourne, a pioneer in early intervention of mental illness in young people will be involved in running Headspace.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Health and Aging, Mr. Christopher Pyne told reporters in Sydney that funding will be an important function of the program. The program is aimed at 12-25 year olds and will receive funding of over $50 million over four years.

Mr. Pyne spoke about the changing attitudes towards the mental health issues of the young. The importance of treating young people with drug and alcohol related problems, and other disturbances is being recognized and Headspace plans to achieve this with a combination of community and clinical services.

Mr. Pyke felt that the funding would be of tremendous benefit to young Australians and to the nation as a whole.

People like Ms.Gelmi, who has suffered from psychiatric problems are relieved and happy to see the emergence of such centers.
