Last year saw the transformation of the Huon Valley Youth Committee into the Huon Valley Youth Working Group. The group was created to support, educate, and celebrate youth in the Huon Valley. They worked on some amazing projects in 2022 which included:
- The creation of the 12 to 24: Huon Valley Youth brand
- Social media campaigns around drugs, tobacco, and alcohol use which you can see on the Facebook and Insta pages
- A youth mental health forum/panel
Expressions of interest are now open for the 2023 working group! Scroll back up for the form!
In conjunction with the Mental Health Council of Tasmania for Mental Health Week 2020, the Huon Valley Youth Committee created the 6 steps to having a conversation campaign. Check it out below!
Talking about mental health can be difficult, so here are six steps to help you along the way.
There are a variety of groups that youth can join and take part in.
This includes, but is not limited to sporting clubs, youth groups and other clubs.
