Apply to be a member of the Australian Youth Advocates for Mental Health!

headspace is searching for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander young people to be part of a group of 12 diverse young mental health advocates (aged 18-25) from across Australia who are passionate about drawing on their own lived experience to make mental health experiences of young people visible.

Through this role, you’ll be involved in developing and delivering the second phase of the Visible project - a national public-facing mental health initiative that uses art to share stories of young people’s mental health difficulties.

Your first activity will be to take part in the current phase of the Visible initiative - you’ll be paired with a creative artist to share a public-facing message about mental health based on your own experience. In early 2021, you’ll then come together with the rest of the team to take Visible into its next phase.

As a member of the Australian Youth Advocates for Mental Health (AYAMH), your 18-month role will commence in early 2021.

Everything you need to know should be answered in the Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander-identified position description and FAQs.
