At headspace, young people’s voices and opinions are front and centre. We are currently recruiting for new volunteers on our headspace Lismore Youth Advisory Group (YAG) to ensure that any new initiative from headspace will make a positive difference in the lives of young people.

Some of the projects YAG members are involved with include:

  • plan and run youth events, workshops, school talks, headspace stalls at festivals and more
  • use headspace social media platforms to connect with and empower other young people and their families
  • assist in the design and development of your local headspace centres – shaping the delivery of headspace services, including policy, staff recruitment and training
  • represent headspace at events for local organisations/services/schools, learn advocacy skills and meet new people

We want to hear from a diverse range of voices aged 12-25yo who live in the Northern Rivers or Southern Gold Coast, particularly if you have experienced your own struggles or feel passionate about improving the mental health and wellbeing of local young people. You are especially encouraged to apply if you are an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young person, have a disability or identify as LGBTIQAP+.

If this sounds like something you or someone you know would be interested in, please complete the following expression of interest form h​ere​ before the 9th August 2020, and we’ll be in contact soon! We can also provide more accessible ways to apply by contacting us.

If you have any further questions about the YAG or headspace, please contact
