HELP US BUILD IT

Youth Leadership Board

Partners for StrongMinds‘ Youth Leadership Board (YLB) is a team of young volunteers responsible for bringing StrongMinds Project to life.

Now you have the opportunity to build upon what we started: 

WHO WE ARE

We’re a group of passionate young people who’ve struggled with our mental health or understand it from the perspective of a loved one. We’re using our unique perspectives to reach more young people with these three truths:

  1. If you’re struggling, you’re not alone.
  2. Getting help early saves lives.
  3. Asking for help is a sign of strength.

WHAT WE DO

YLB members volunteer 1-4 hours per month in a variety of ways, gaining valuable experience and the opportunity to make an impact for young people navigating psychosis and other mental health concerns for the first time. Contributions can be public-facing or behind-the-scenes:

  • Share your story.
  • Advise on strategy.
  • Write, edit or curate content for the blog and other social channels.
  • Speak at events or engage in press interviews.
  • Shape mental health policy for equal access to high quality treatment.
  • Activate StrongMinds Project at your school, workplace or in your community.

How To Join

If you’re 13-29 with direct or indirect experience of a mental health challenge, please submit a short introduction and share why and in what way(s) you would like to contribute.

Membership can be anonymous if preferred. Questions? Email us!
