headspace Devonport offers young people mental health and counselling support. We provide clinical counselling to young people for a wide range of issues from low mood, anxiety and other mental health concerns, and other concerns that commonly affect young people including conflict or hassles at school, home or work; difficulties with relationships; hassles with drugs and alcohol; being comfortable and being accepted for diverse gender and sexuality status, and so on. In addition to our Counsellor we also have a Youth Worker who can support young people in different ways such as with help getting access to services such as housing, vocational services, GP’s and Nurses, and Centrelink.
We are open 9 to 5, 5 days a week; Thursdays for new enquiries and all other days by appointment only.
To access headspace Devonport’s services come in and see us on Thursdays anytime between 9am and 4pm; our staff will spend time with you, explain the service and help you work out what assistance you need. We also welcome family members and friends to visit us on Thursdays if they want to talk about someone they are concerned about.
We accept referrals from multiple sources, ensuring young people (12-25) and their families and friends can directly access headspace services, without needing a formal referral from other service providers. Give us a call to make an appointment.
If headspace Devonport doesn’t offer the service you need, then we will support you to access it.

headspace Devonport also operates headspace Medical @ Don College, which is a bulk-billed medical service for people aged 12-18 operating at Don College every Thursday (except during school holidays). Bulk billing is where the doctor bills medicare directly and accepts the Medicare benefits as full payment for their service. This means you do not have any out-of-pocket expenses.
headspace Devonport also operates the Individual Placement & Support Program which is a program dedicated to helping young people who have mental health concerns, to access jobs that they are interested in and passionate about.
headspace is supported by Primary Health Tasmania under the Australian Government’s Primary Health Networks Program
