Family & Friends Reference Group

Are you a friend or family member of a young person going through a hard time?  

Are you a community member with an interest or passion for mental health and other youth related issues?   

Then we want you to join our FAMILY & FRIENDS REFERENCE GROUP (FFRG)

Our FFRG meet monthly to discuss all things youth mental health and how we can best support our youth community and their families. As a collective: we listen, we learn and provide advice that guides the continuous development of headspace Cannington services.

As part of the Family and Friends Reference group you will:

  • Engage and work with families and friends
  • Help with projects and events that support parents, families and friends
  • Have input into strategies and campaigns that target family and friends  
  • Develop new skills 
  • Meet and work with other people who are passionate about youth mental health 
  • Attend consortium meetings
  • Make a difference to youth mental health through media and promotion.

Commitment: We appreciate that everyone lives busy lives so official meetings are limited to monthly. We also communicate regularly via emails, and through our private FFRG Facebook page/messenger group. Training will be provided, and development opportunities offered.
