headspace Bega provides a range of services free of charge to people 12-25 and family/carers. We have a centre in bega and outpost centres in Narooma, Cooma and Eden.
We have a ‘no wrong door’ policy, meaning that any young person can access service and if we are not the appropriate service for you we can find the service that may be more suitable.

How to Access Services
HOW TO REFER:
Young people are encouraged to make contact with the headspace Bega service directly. Young people in Eden, Cooma and Narooma can access our centralised intake via the Bega hub.
Young people can call 1800 959 844 within office hours or email firstname.lastname@example.org and a worker will contact the young person to complete a referral.
Young people can call into headspace Bega between 9am and 5pm, Monday- Friday or at one of our outreach locations between 9am and 5pm Tuesday-Thursday. Staff will endeavor to see the young person the same day or will assist them with a referral and an appointment will be made as soon as possible.
Professional Referral- Service Providers
GP’s, Allied Health Professionals, community-based agencies and educational institutions can all refer young people to headspace Bega using the Service Providers Referral Form. General Practitioners should include a mental health care plan (if appropriate) for the young person and attach this to the headspace Bega referral form.
Referral form can be found on our website headspacebega.org.au
Families, carers or friends can refer a young person to headspace Bega. Once receipt of referral has been confirmed, a worker will contact the young person to make an appointment. Families, parents or carers who have a young person engaged with headspace Bega can also access our centre to discuss service provision
