Youth Mental Health Services is seeking young people and young adults with experience of mental health distress or social and emotional wellbeing issues to influence how we do business. The State-wide Youth Mental Health Services Reference group will have representatives from across South Australia who will meet four times a year, provide advice and information to the Youth Mental Health Services Steering Committee and advocate for great services for young people. Involvement is free. You'll get all the training you need to be a part of the group, we'll supply snacks for meetings and reimburse you for your time. For young people who live outside the metro area, we can connect you via our digital telehealth network available from 13 different locations and pay for you to come to Adelaide for one of the meetings each year. There will be an additional group for carers of a young person with mental health issues. Further information will be available shortly. To find out more or to chat about how you might get involved, call Julie on 8226 4056 or email: Julie.Deane2@sa.gov.au
