Youth voices at the centre of headspace Canberra
Applications are now open for the 2019 headspace Canberra Youth Reference Group. Young people aged between 16 and 25 with a passion for mental health and youth issues are encouraged to apply.
Joining the Youth Reference Group presents a unique opportunity for young people to develop new skills, meet and work with other driven young people, and be a voice for young people in the community.
In order to provide an accurate representation of youth concerns, headspace Canberra are keen to hear the voices of young Indigenous people, young people from different cultural backgrounds and LGBTIQA+ young people.
“We want young people to apply if they’ve had their own experiences with mental health; whether that’s through friends or family, or a lived experience. Generally though, if you have a passion for youth issues and want to be a part of a dynamic group that represents headspace, we encourage you to apply!”
