Youth Panellist He/Him Oliver Ol-i-vuh
Oliver is part of our Youth Panel and wants to help influence decisions around mental health. Find out more about Oliver.
Being on the Youth Panel allows me to influence decisions on mental health provision, education, and all that YoungMinds does. I enjoy solving problems, especially matters which can help people.
The value I relate the most to is: 'kindness is our strength'.
'Kindness is our strength' is a value which resonates lots. In some domains it may be seen as a weakness, but YoungMinds demonstrates that being compassionate and authentic is very powerful.
I spend time with family and friends, cooking and gaming.
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.
