A new centre designed to help
young people in the Queanbeyan
community will open its doors
The headspace initiative is aimed
at providing youth with a one-stop
option to deliver a variety of
medical and mental health services.
Queanbeyan centre manager
Avril Mackay said the design of the
centre and the programs in place
had been chosen for young people
by young people.
We ve had so much youth
involvement," she said.
Because it s been designed by
young people we hope they will
engage and follow up with any
treatment they need.
Ms Mackay said the team, which
includes three youth mental health
workers as well as service providers
to help young people with
counselling, drug and alcohol
addiction and crisis
accommodation, was excited the
centre was finally going to open
We know there is quite a lot of
demand in the community so we re
quite excited to open the doors
and start helping young people,
She said the main reason people
access the free services offered by
headspace was to seek help for mild
to moderate mental health issues.
That s stress, bullying at
school, family breakdowns, grief,
anxiety and a bit of depression, so
we re expecting they re the main
things we will see come through,
Ms Mackay said.
The headspace centre, located
behind Westpac on the corner of
Crawford Street and Monaro Street,
is set to open on Friday.
Opening hours will be from 9am
to 5pm from Monday through
Friday, excluding Thursdays when
the centre will open from 11am

GST increase to
Recent statements from politicians
and business seem to indicate a
decision to extend the application
of the Goods and Services Tax.
As I ve said before, the GST is
the worst tax that I, as a pensioner,
have been subjected to, and also the
It is my intention not to vote for
any party at the next election that
introduces increases to the GST or
for any party that supports such
I look forward to hearing more
criticism of the proposed action
from welfare groups, pensioner
groups and the press.
