Youth voices needed to shape headspace message
Applications are open for headspace Dubbo’s 2019 Youth Reference Group. Young people aged 12 to 25 years, with an interest in local youth issues, are encouraged to apply.
Amy Mines, Community and Youth Engagement Coordinator at the centre, is encouraging young people with a passion for mental health to apply for the Youth Reference Group – and use the opportunity to shape the headspace message and services in Dubbo and the surrounding communities.
“This year, two of our Youth Reference Group members were invited to meet the Duke and Duchess of Sussex with the centre’s Program Manager. Of course this opportunity isn’t a daily occurrence, however it does show how much youth voices are valued by not only headspace Dubbo, but by people who can bring about real change to the ways we approach mental illness.”
