Youth Panellist He/Him Joseph
Joseph is part of our Youth Panel and is wants to have his voice heard in the discussion around mental health. Find out more about Joseph.
I am currently studying for A Levels. My year were the first school year to physically sit GCSE’s and our schooling was significantly affected by Covid. There has been an exponential increase in adolescent mental health problems such as anxiety and depression and I wanted to contribute to the discussion.
The value I relate the most to is: 'we're not afraid to speak up for what's right'.
We need to feel empowered to challenge and question whenever we feel wronged.
I relax and socialise with my friends.
Our Youth Panel works with us for three years to help shape our future as a charity and achieve our mission. They talk about things like strategy, safeguarding, fundraising, organisational culture, risk management, data protection, brand and marketing.
Our current Youth Panel joined us in October 2023.
