Headspace Swan Hill celebrated their first birthday on Wednesday with a party at the Campbell Street community tree.

Manager Ian Johansen said more than 250 young people had sought help from their services since their opening in February last year," Mr Johansen said.

"This has been a really exciting and growing year for us, and we will continue to grow into the future.

"We have a really great team and are lucky to have such excellent and passionate staff."

Mr Johansen said the benefits of having headspace in Swan Hill were already clear.

"Just this morning I was talking to a young person who said they had gained so much from headspace," he said on Wednesday.

"Hearing something like that is really what it's all about. Young people have definitely found benefits from coming along and receiving services.

"It doesn't matter the issue; we're here to help and have your back."
