Tell us a little about Headspace Bathurst Youth Reference Group and why you joined?

I became a member to find out about the current issues facing young people today in our community. As someone who is hoping to enter a career in mental health and youth, the discussions and communication with other members has informed me of the particular needs of young people in obtaining a healthy wellbeing. Not to mention meeting awesome, like-minded people! 

How do you look after my headspace?

In order to maintain a positive headspace I make sure I allow 'me time,' whether it be going for a walk or watching a movie, I need it to recharge and escape the routine. I also make sure I spend time with my friends :) 

If you had a superpower what would it be?

Teleportation would be mad! There's so much of the world I want to see and this would make it so much easier! 

How I would approach a friend who was worried about something?

I would take them out for lunch or a cuppa and without pressuring them, try and get them to open up and get things off their chest. Often just being a good listener, is enough for them to feel supported and happier.
