REVERB is Mental health workshops co-designed and delivered by multicultural young people. Units are available for multicultural young people to take up during 2020.
REVERB is a co-design project with young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds, which aims to address the stigma surrounding mental health. REVERB will amplify young people’s voices, share their lived experiences to encourage young people to seek help and practice positive wellbeing.
CMY, mental health services and young people will co-design and co-facilitate safe and culturally relevant conversations through workshops with young people, community members and mental health services providers. The place-based workshops share lived experiences of overcoming ill mental health and provides practical, participant-led strategies that encourage better mental health outcomes for young people.
As part of the Reverb project there are currently two workshops available, with a third on the way in 2021.
“I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for last night’s session. I was so impressed with the young facilitators’ skills and the way they supported the young people in the group through the topics. I loved the way they ran each workshop and the way they engaged each person. The activities worked so well with the online platform format.” – Youth Development Officer, City of Whittlesea
