Youth Panel.

I have just sent in my application to See Change to be on a youth panel. This panel is all about promoting positive mental health and helping See Change to make a difference.

Here is some information about the Youth Panel:

“Thank you for your interest in getting involved with See Change. Our youth panel will be a valuable part of our campaign, whether you’re on Facebook and Twitter or raising awareness in communities.

The Youth Panel (YP) is a group of 10-15 young people aged between 18 and 25 who will advise and guide See Change in all areas of our work, get Ireland talking about mental health, reshaping people’s attitudes and creating new fun ways of reducing the stigma attached to mental health problems.

See Change is a social movement that is changing how Ireland thinks about mental health. We want to create a conversation within the community about people’s attitudes and behaviour towards mental health. Mental health is part and parcel of being human but society needs to recognise that everyone can recover from it. The aim of the youth panel is to first create a grassroot network among young people to help us spread this message and aid us in creating this shift with wider sphere of society.

Our key aims in See Change are to:

  1. Create an environment where people can be more open and positive in their attitudes and behaviour towards mental health;
  2. Create greater understanding and acceptance of people with mental health problems;
  3. Create greater understanding and knowledge of mental health problems and of health services that provide support for mental health problems; and
  4. To reduce stigma associated with mental health problems and challenge discrimination.”
