headspace reference groups

To make sure headspace remains relevant and youth-friendly, we engage a range of reference groups so that the young people’s voices are heard for decisions and development of key headspace activities and initiatives.

Below are a few of our current reference groups.



hY NRG (headspace Youth National Reference Group) is a group of young people who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of young people.

hY NRG are advocates for young people, youth mental health, and leaders within their own communities. Their diversity of backgrounds, viewpoints and experiences with mental health provides headspace with the voices and insights needed to stay an accessible and important service for young people across the country.
