The Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre Health Literacy Team is looking for youth to inform the new eHealth Project, the redevelopment of mindcheck.ca! We will be forming two groups, one group which will meet in person in the lower mainland and a second group from across the province that will meet virtually.
What is the eHealth Project?
Young people experiencing mental health or substance use challenges should never struggle to find the information, resources, or services that they need to support their health and well-being. With so many choices and organizations out there, it can be hard for young people and families to know where to turn.
Once developed, this website will be a youth- and young adult-friendly online space that young people can visit to get information, resources and support on mental health and substance use challenges as well as school, work, financial or other health-related challenges. This space will also help connect youth and young adults with local services that will best meet their needs.
What is the Purpose of the Youth / Young Adult Advisory Committee?
In order to make sure the website represents young people’s needs and preferences for online spaces and media, we would like to form a committee of young people to help inform what the website will do, how it will function and what it will look like.
In the forming of this committee care will be taken to try and have equal representation from various age groups, ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations and locations. The group will consist of eight to ten young people and there may be more than one group depending on how much interest there is.
What are the Perks of Participating in the Committee?
