Being Herd Pathways - light blue (1)

What’s Being Herd Pathways all about?

A program to help you take charge of your future! We start with a FREE two day workshop where you will:

– Learn to share your story of mental ill health

– Gain confidence, self belief and be supported in realising your potential

– Brush up on skills to get job ready

After the workshop you will be paired up with a mentor! They will check in with how you are feeling and be someone you can reach out to if you have any questions along the way about how to reach your goals.


Who is Pathways for?

Being Herd Pathways is for young people who:

  • are 18-24 year olds
  • aren’t currently in education, employment or training
  • are Australian/New Zealand citizens, permanent residents of Australia or humanitarian visa holders
  • are living in Western Sydney, Central Coast/Hunter or North Coast
  • have a lived experience of mental ill health (you don’t need a diagnosed mental illness, rather have been affected by mental ill health at some point on your journey)

If you are a service provider and know a young person who would benefit from being part of Being Herd Pathways please fill out the form below on behalf of them (with their permission) or point them in this direction!
