► Youth Engagement & Leadership

This project aims to support people who have lived experience of the mental health system, either in themselves (called youth consumer advisors) or through their family (family/whānau advisors). To do this guidelines and workshops are created as needed. Werry Workforce Whāraurau also supports a network of youth consumer advisors around the country who aim to improve various DHBs, NGOs as well as Werry Workforce itself. 

A place with youth and family advisors co-designing projects and providing input will have happier families who experience a better path of recovery and improved outcomes. Find out more about #DMC and youth consumer participation here.
