headspace for Hawkesbury under Labor

Wentworth Healthcare, provider of the Nepean Blue Mountains Primary Health Network, welcomes the announcement made by Susan Templeman, Member for Macquarie, that Labor will fund a new full-service headspace in the Hawkesbury if elected into Government.

Wentworth Healthcare CEO, Lizz Reay said, “We are passionate about improving the mental health of our local communities and know there is a real need for ongoing services in the Hawkesbury area.”
“Together with the community, we have been advocating for additional youth mental health services in the Hawkesbury, and we are pleased that our local member has listened to these concerns and taken action,” she said.
“headspace services play an important role in supporting young people and their mental health. Hawkesbury youth have been through so much over the past few years, from drought to bushfires, a pandemic and multiple floods. Early intervention programs such as headspace are critical as they not only impact young people’s lives in the present but can influence the whole community as these young people mature into adulthood,” said Ms Reay.
