Youth Reference Group


headspace Brookvale Youth Reference Group is currently recruiting!

 

The YRG is one of the ways we involve young people in the development and implementation of our service.

Youth participation enables young people to have a role in an organisation’s structure. It can include a range of consultation and decision-making activities that benefit the organisation and young people involved.

headspace practices a ‘youth-centred’ approach to youth participation. This means young people are meaningfully engaged in all aspects of the organisation and work in collaboration with the headspace team to improve the service.

In the eyes of headspace young people are the experts when it comes to youth health issues.

With support from the headspace centre staff, members of the YRG will have the opportunity to lead specific projects. These projects may include, awareness campaigns, planning and attending events, being involved with creating content for our social media, sitting in on interviews....the possibilities are endless!

The YRG is made up of young people passionate about mental health and well-being.

The YRG aims to:

  • Provide young people with the opportunity to have input into the strategic direction of headspace services, and local youth services services
  • Allow a way for the voice of young people to be heard and acted upon
  • Provide opportunities for skills and leadership development
  • Support young people to lead projects locally
  • Be engaged in their local community

Young People on the headspace YRG will have the opportunity to be involved in a number of ways including:

  • Media spokespeople and community engagement opportunities
  • Lead local projects
  • Marketing, promotion and community awareness activities
  • Involvement in mental health related focus groups and consultations
  • Evaluation, research, policy and advocacy.
