Young people at participating local schools will be taking part in the headspace Orange Youth Forum this week, organised and led by the Orange headspace youth reference group and the headspace Orange team.

The Youth Forum, made possible through a Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal (FRRR) ABC Heywire Youth Innovation grant, and local donations, is a one-of-a kind event for the Central West region and features key speakers Nic Newling, Chris Houston, Dean Withers, and Dakoda and Claire Ward – who will all shine a light on mental health and the importance of speaking up when you need support.

Alison Logan, Centre Manager at headspace Orange, says this is the first time the Youth Forum will be presented to schools outside of Orange – a huge achievement for the centre.
