About the role:

The Youth Support Person (YSP) is a mental health professional who aims to create a safe workshop environment for all participants in our Being Herd Pathways workshops.  During the workshop, the YSP is responsible for providing support to participants.  This support may be in the form of debriefing, conducting risk assessments and/or counselling. The YSP will also assist with the management of incidents to ensure that participants are safe, and encourage participants to connect with their usual support system after the workshop, or will inform them of support available for them in the community and how to access it.

About you:

You are a mental health professional who is passionate about working with young people. You are a relaxed individual, happy to go with the flow and create a fun and supportive environment for young people to gain the confidence to share their story of mental ill-health. You also know a thing or two about self-care and love it. You are either working part-time, returning to work or have a flexible schedule to do workshops during the week or weekend.
