Responding to the COVID-19 outbreak
Orygen is continuing to provide mental health care and support during the COVID-19 outbreak.
We acknowledge that the uncertainty brought about by COVID-19 can raise feelings of anxiety, distress and concern. Maintaining the mental health of young people remains our priority.
We are working to ensure we can continue to deliver high-quality care and world-class research while also ensuring the health and wellbeing of young people and their families, our staff and our supporters.
As of 11 June 2021 we have in place the following:
- Orygen is continuing to deliver clinical services through its primary (headspace) and specialist platforms. Both in-person and telehealth appointments are available.
- Group sessions through our primary and specialist clinical programs are running in line with current COVID-19 restrictions.
- All other activities are continuing in line with current COVID-19 restrictions
We have put these arrangements in place to ensure we can continue to keep the work of Orygen running as optimally as possible while trying to limit the spread of COVID-19 in the community.
We have also prepared information for young people, families and clinicians. Please use the links below to access this information.
