About us:

It's an exciting time to be part of our journey. You may have noticed we've changed our name from Aftercare to Stride.

We’re leaders in mental health service delivery, specialising in working with adults and young people, and in early childhood intervention.

Stride is a name that expresses our ambition – it’s a name that’s purposeful and shows awareness of the important role we play in the recovery journey.

As we embark on the next stage of our journey, join us to make a difference. We're here to Stride. 

About the service:

headspace Centres act as a one-stop-shop for young people aged 12-25 years who need help with mental health, physical health, alcohol and other drugs and/or work and study support.

  • To create a network to discuss youth mental health issues within the region, to identify gaps and provide leadership to share and discuss ideas on how to meet these needs.



  • Demonstrated leadership experience
  • Experience as a Chairperson in a range of different roles.
  • Sound knowledge of corporate and clinical governance requirements and processes.
  • A collaborative style of decision making 
  • Effective communications skills
