Young Healthy Minds Project


The Young Healthy Minds Project empowers young people to gain skills, knowledge and opportunity to promote
positive mental health and suicide prevention through training and ongoing support. Participants will undertake
the planning and facilitation of events, health promotion activities and public speaking to promote and advocate
for positive mental health.

The Young Healthy Minds Project is available to young people aged 12 to 24 across the Lake Macquarie and
Newcastle LGA’s. Participants will form a Network of mental health advocates who will meet face-to-face and
online to discuss, coordinate and plan the delivery of a range of community-based projects including events and
health promotion activities as well as public speaking events to better advocate for the mental health and
wellbeing needs of young people.
