This year headspace Caboolture’s Youth Reference Group (YRG) have talked about MEANINGFUL engagement and they identified that young people who have special needs do not get as much or sometimes no engagement from community services.
With the help of a funding grant, the YRG planned, organised and participated in an event at their local special school to mark headspace day and raise awareness for the services that we offer. The team arranged a DJ/Dance Station, Sensory Station, Creative Station, Games Station, Chill out Space as well as a Lucky Draw Prize!
The event was a kind reminder to our YRG members, team members and staff why they are passionate about what they do and the impact headspace can have on the lives of young people struggling with their mental health.
Below is some feedback from the school:
Just wanted to say thanks again to you and your team for the awesome event you put on! The students loved it and have been asking more questions about headspace, so I’d say that we achieved our goal of creating awareness.
I’m so glad that we’ve made the connection with headspace and going forward we are keen to collaborate in any way you’d like. Contact us any time!
