Headfyrst

 

Overview

Headfyrst is a service for young people aged between 12-25 years in Western and South Western Sydney, who are experiencing co-existing alcohol and other drug (AOD) and mental health issues.

The service is a collaboration between the Salvation Army Youthlink and selected headspace youth mental health centres. These two teams are cooperatively involved in ongoing care coordination, with the goal of providing high quality, free treatment.

Headfyrst provides resources, counselling and support to young people in the service, and aims to support them to build on their strengths to enhance their health, wellbeing, independence and participation.

The service also works in collaboration with other organisations including mental health teams, early intervention and recovery services. In addition, access to SMART Recovery Groups is also facilitated.
