headspace lead announcement
Friday, 29 April 2016
South Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (SEMPHN) is pleased to announce that EACH Social and Community Health (EACH) has been selected as the preferred lead agency to operate the headspace Dandenong and Narre Warren centres following an Expression of Interest process earlier this year.
EACH currently provides an integrated range of health, disability, counselling and community health services across Australia, as well as operating two other headspace centres in Port Macquarie and Knox.
“SEMPHN will now begin working with EACH with the aim of finalising a contract for the provision of services in the Dandenong and Narre Warren areas by the end of June,” SEMPHN CEO Elizabeth Deveny said.
The two headspace offices see about 1500 clients per year, providing early intervention mental health services to youth aged 12–25.
EACH CEO Peter Ruzyla said he looked forward to working with the SEMPHN team to ensure a smooth transition to the new lead agency for both clients and employees and will strive to ensure seamless service continuity for all young people using the service. EACH is excited to be working more closely with the diverse South Eastern Melbourne community.
