Go Green for Youth Mental Health Awareness at Jetty 2 Jetty 2018.
Every year the Jetty 2 Jetty raises funds for an important charity. The 2018 Jetty 2 Jetty is supporting headspace Redcliffe.
headspace is the National Youth Mental Health Foundation providing early intervention mental health services for 12-25 year olds, along with assistance in promoting young peoples’ wellbeing. This covers four core areas: mental health, physical health, work and study support and alcohol and other drug services. There are now over 100 centres in Australia, which include headspace Redcliffe.
headspace Redcliffe is a safe and welcoming place where young people can receive free or low cost support through;
- One on one counselling
- Group therapy
- Alcohol and drug counselling
- Education and employment support
- Sexuality and Gender Acceptance Peer Support Group
- Parent and/or Carers Discussion Groups

headspace Redcliffe also have a Youth Reference Group, which is a team of young people that are passionate about mental health and making a change. This is done by running events and regularly meeting to share and create ideas and plans on how headspace Redcliffe can provide the best support for local young people.
headspace Redcliffe are excited to be a part of the 2018 Jetty 2 Jetty and will host a stall where people can obtain free information and merchandise. We will also be participating in the 5km Races.
