Youth Reference Group

At our centre in Edinburgh North, we hope to give young people a voice about the issues that matter to them.

Our Youth Reference Group (YRG) have been having a say in the way headspace works in the Edinburgh North region since 2007 and although some of our original members aren’t so young anymore, youth issues have remained important to us.

We want young people to have their say in how our centre looks and feels, what sort of events they’d like to see in our community, who we employ and what topics we should be tackling with young people. This year, we are looking to recruit new members to support our current YRG.

If you, or someone you know, is aged between 15-25 and has a passion for mental health and community leadership, get in touch with us to apply for a position as a YRG member for 2017-2018. You can contact our YRG coordinator, Trephina Gartley, via phone on (08) 8209 0700 or e-mail at
