Christmas Closing Hours

Nov 2021 – Jan 2022
Thank you for coming into headspace in 2021 and for sharing some of your recovery journey with us. We would like you to be aware that the headspace Gosford, headspace Lake Haven and headspace Wyong service platforms are closing for a brief time over the holiday period. This closure includes the headspace, Connected Recovery and Individual Placement and Support Programs. Please note that our phones will not be monitored during our closure period.
We will be closing from Monday 27th December 2021 and opening again at 8:30am on Tuesday 4th January 2022 at headspace Gosford, headspace Lake Haven and headspace Wyong.
2021 has been a big year for us all. At headspace, we have experienced an increase in the number of young people seeking support. This is very positive, however it has meant that our wait times have increased and it also means that if you miss your planned appointment at the end of 2021, we may not be able to fit you back in until the New Year.
We wish you a very happy holiday season and hope that you enjoy your summer. We are aware that the Christmas period can be stressful for some people. If you feel that you need support during this time, and while you are waiting for your next contact with our service, please refer to the follow support services, we have also included some headspace information sheets and resources for you to refer to:
