Talkin’ About Your headspace Youth Ambassadors (TAYhYA) - Applications now open for 2019.

Are you a university student looking for an opportunity to help promote positive mental health and encourage early help seeking?

TAYhYA is a unique peer based program, where our volunteers attend secondary schools and sports clubs to facilitate interactive mental health workshops. Plus from January 2019 as a pilot project, the Ambassador program will be expanded to include in-house orientation sessions with new young people who are referred to headspace Adelaide for counselling. The orientation sessions are non-clinical, Ambassadors will welcome clients to the service by providing an overview of what to expect at headspace, a tour of the centre and provide helpful tips and resources to use in between appointments.

There will also be opportunity to co-facilitate in-house group workshops such as dogspace and homework club.

TAYhYA includes mentoring to volunteers, training opportunities with ongoing support such as individual and group supervision.
