At headspace, we make sure young people are at the center of everything we do. There is no one better qualified than young people themselves. That's why we are currently recruiting a Youth Reference Group (YRG).

Members of the YRG are a voice for local youth culture and provide their perspective on how headspace Armidale operates. In return, we mentor and upskill members to become leaders and advocates for youth mental health. Being a member includes:

=> Developing skills that suit your own interests

=> Learning how to design, drive and deliver events

=> Receive free training and qualifications such as Mental Health First Aid

=> Creating projects that strengthen youth culture while receiving professional mentoring and peer support

=> Ensuring all cultures are being heard - Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, Culturally and Linguistically Diverse and LGBTIQA+ inclusive

The YRG meets monthly with projects and events occurring at various times through the year. Anyone aged 14-25 is welcome to join and you can come along to meetings to see if it's right for you.

If you're interested, fill in this short form and we'll be in touch about attending your first meeting: headspace Armidale YRG Form
