Action Mental Health Launches Youth Panel

What is it?

We at Action Mental Health are creating a youth-led mental health panel. A panel that will be run by individuals (aged 13-24) for young people with the focus on helping improve the wellbeing and resilience of future generations.

The AMH youth led panel will give children and young people the opportunity to contribute their views, opinions and ideas to help with:

  • The development of AMH projects and programmes for children and young people
  • and to inform policy and decision making in relation to mental and emotional wellbeing of children and young people in NI

Young people make up a third of the population in Northern Ireland and every single young person is an expert in youth mental health as they have their own lived experience to contribute.

Action Mental Health see an amazing opportunity to improve our own services and the wider mental health service provision for children and young people in NI.

By listening to and championing these expertise and life experience we can help make a difference for youth mental health in NI

We advocate for youth engagement and empowerment, we know how important peer support is and have recently developed our peer and mental health ambassador programmes to help children and young people promote positive mental health and help each other to get support when it is needed.

At Action Mental Health we’re ready to go to the next level for youth engagement and empowerment in Mental Health.
