Are you a young person aged between 16 and 24 and live in the Darling Downs or West Moreton region? Or are you a parent or carer of a young person? Why not host a conversation with other young people about healthcare?
Why young people?
Younger health consumers (aged 16-25 years) are under-represented in decision-making processes in health services across Queensland.
Many young people continue to access health services designed for older adults including emergency services, mental health services, acute and chronic support services. These young people like you, have valuable experience, and feedback to give that is important to the Darling Downs West Moreton PHN and the health system.
We want to hear the voices of young people including your voice! We also want to better understand and make changes you may have experienced with health services in the Darling Downs West Moreton region.
What kind of conversation would I be hosting?
The kind of conversation used in this project is Kitchen Table Discussions or Yarning Circles. you do not need any skills or experience to host a Kitchen Table Discussion or Yarning Circle, just an open mind and connections to other young people who want to get involved in a meaningful way and make a difference. You will get plenty of support and tools to use to run the conversation.
