Youth Advisors needed for Mental Health Commission Advisory Group

» 10/10/2010, Posted by Site Admin


The Mental Health Commission has an Advisory Group that provides advice on mental health and addiction issues. The group meets about three times a year to help the Commission work out what the important issues are, what it should focus on, and how it can work better. The next group meeting is in early November.

The Commission is looking for two youth advisors to join this group. Preferably they will be under the age of 25 and have used either a mental health or addiction service. Ideally, they will have an understanding of what issues are important to young people. We are looking for two youth or young adults who are willing to say what they think. The group is highly supportive of young people. A daily fee including any flight costs is paid to members.

If you are interested in having a role on the Commission's Advisory Group please contact:
Rick Williment - 021 733 660 or (04) 917 8920 - rick.williment@mhc.govt.nz

Please give your personal details including relevant history and contact details saying why you are interested and the skills you bring by Friday 15 October.
