YOUNG people in Portland now have better access to youth mental health services, with the opening of the latest headspace centre at Active Health Portland.

Headspace offers early intervention for 12 to 25-year-olds in four key areas: mental health, related physical health, social and vocational support, and alcohol and other drug use.

Members of the western Victoria community will be hearing a lot about My Health Record in the next three months. Australians are being informed how to register online for a My Health Record or, if they choose, how to opt out of the system.

Individuals can opt out of My Health Record until 15 October 2018.
