Young Advisor Recruitment

The Midlands Young Advisors are excited to announce that they will be recruiting for up to 5 new Young Advisors. This is a chance to join their team during an excited period of growth and development, where a young person can have the opportunity to really make a difference to mental health services. We undertake a variety of projects such as:

  • Producing and delivering training on mental health topics, in schools, for clinical practitioners, and on university courses

  • Coproducing and codeveloping projects across the NHS, Health Education England, The Youth Justice Sector, and beyond!

  • Supporting and running recruitment for future CYP Mental Health Practitioners

  • Running our annual conference on hot topics in young people’s mental health.

The aim for their recruitment strategy is to diversify their existing team so as to expand our lived-experience knowledge basis. As such, we particularly welcome applications from:

  • People of colour

  • People of faith

  • Those who speak English as a second language

  • Those with experience of the Youth Justice System

  • Those with experience living in care

  • People with complex mental health diagnoses, e.g., schizophrenia, personality disorders, and bipolar

  • People with other care needs, e.g., physical disabilities, learning disabilities, and/or neurodiversity

Though this is not to say applicants must fit the above criteria in order to apply
