Changes at work in health provider

OPERATIONAL changes to headspace in Wagga will not effect the delivery of vital services, Murrumbidgee Primary Health Network has confirmed.

The free mental health support service for young people aged 12 to 25 is now being run by Relationships Australia. 

Murrumbidgee Primary Health Network CEO James Lamerton said every effort would be taken to make a smooth transition.

The primary health network had been the lead agency operating headspace in Wagga since its inception in 2008. 

“The service will remain free with no referral necessary – continuing to help young people that are going through a tough time,” Mr Lamerton said.

Griffith headspace, which opened earlier this year, will also transition to being operated by Centacare South West NSW.
