Anthony Byrne MP, Federal Member for Holt, visited the new headspace for Fountain Gate today to inspect building works. He was joined by Anne Peek and Christine Crosbie representing the South Eastern Melbourne Medicare Local, the agency managing the headspace and youth advocate Amanda Carron.
Building works at the headspace for Fountain Gate located at 66 Victor Crescent, Narre Warren, will be finished before the end of the year. The facility will be fully operational on Tuesday 6 January 2015. In a rapidly growing community headspace Fountain Gate will provide health advice to young people aged 12-25 encountering mental health difficulties and challenges.
An official opening will take place in February 2015, however local young people will be able to visit the centre to receive mental health support from 6 January 2015.
“After a long community campaign led by Casey’s youth it is exciting that a large headspace centre will be fully operational in January 2015. Casey’s Youth should be proud of their campaign for this much needed service for the local community. Many young people go through some challenging times but to have a local mental health centre that can provide support and assistance to our rapidly growing youth population is vitally important. It is important that the families are aware of this facility in Fountain Gate, which will be of great value to young people in our region,’ said Mr Byrne.
