To the Editor: We must clarify that the findings of Iorfino and colleagues1 do not apply to headspace clients. This understandable misperception comes from the article’s title, “early intervention mental health services”, and participants coming from “clinics” that “provide both primary care services (headspace) and more specialised services”. Quotes from an InSight+ article2 and the accompanying editorial3 infer that the findings generalise to headspace, but they do not.
