Mosman youth act on mental health

Posted Wednesday 23 September 2015

Mosman youth with support from Council’s Youth Services team have been working hard to tackle mental health, which was a key issue raised by young people in the annual youth report.

Nearly 200 youth attended the live music event planned by Vocal Rewind youth volunteers, Groovin’ the Mind, which aimed to de-stigmatise mental health and raise awareness.

Another youth volunteer group, View Finders, is partnering with the Mosman Men’s Shed to create a “green wall” inside the Youth Centre on which positive messages and tips on de-stressing will feature next to green plants.

Meanwhile, Mospress volunteer youth media campaigners are encouraging young people to share their views on the topic on social media through the #myvoice campaign.
