Leaders Unlocked are currently looking for young people to join MH:2K – a youth-led project addressing mental health. MH:2K empowers 14-25 year olds to:

  • Identify the mental health issues that they see as most important;
  • Engage their peers in discussing and exploring these topics;
  • Work with key local decision-makers to make recommendations for change.

MH:2K is delivered by Leaders Unlocked in association with Derby City Council, Derbyshire County Council, and NHS Derby and Derbyshire CCGs. The project is an integral part of the ongoing work to improve children’s emotional and mental health in the region. Please visit: www.leaders-unlocked.org

MH:2K is aimed at young people aged 14-25, with an interest in mental health who want to make a difference to their community.  We’re seeking a diverse group of young people with different life experiences to take part, including those who;

  • Themselves/ friends or family, have experienced mental health difficulties
  • Are often underrepresented e.g. young carers, those in the care system, LGBTQ+, BAME young people, LLDD.

This is a brilliant opportunity for young people to gain new knowledge, skills and experience. Those who join the MH:2K team will play an important role as ‘Citizen Researchers’ in helping to design and run workshops to engage other young people.

We welcome and encourage all to apply. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions about the application process. All application documents attached. Please email the form back to me at anna@leaders-unlocked.org by Friday 27th November 2020.
