Hull and East Yorkshire Mind is looking for young people aged 13-18 willing to get involved in shaping and planning their services.
We want young people to work as partners with Hull and East Yorkshire Mind, and have a voice to influence the way we support children and young people with their mental health.
There will be 2 ways to get involved- either by joining a mailing list to receive regular surveys to complete, or by attending a group to talk to us about your thoughts and ideas.
Young people who get involved will gain voluntary experience which can be used on a CV, or university application. They will also be supported to log volunteer hours to get certificates for the voluntary hours completed.
Lisa Wray, Trainee Children’s Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner, said “It’s really important that we make sure we are delivering local services that young people want.
“There are many young people in our area who need support with their mental health, and we are here to help. This new initiative is all about making sure the help we provide is easily accessible for the young people who need it.
“I really hope young people will want to get involved with helping us design services that work best for everyone. Anyone aged 13-18 in the Hull and East Riding area is very welcome to get involved- whether or not they need, or have previously used, mental health support.”
The first group of young people will be meeting on Wednesday 16th August at 1pm, at Hull and East Yorkshire Mind offices on Beverley Road in Hull.
