Workshop: We are the ones we’ve been waiting for
The Optimistic Minds project has sought to create a dialogue between young people’s experiences and empirical evidence of ‘what works’ in youth mental health provision. This workshop used legislative theatre methods to explore tensions and productive possibilities. It is designed for anyone vested in working with young people to navigate translating mental health evidence into practice.
Three key messages:
- Youth voice must be included evidence-based decision making
- Legislative theatre enables dialogue between young people and those working in mental health
- We need to invest in sustainable approaches for including youth voice in mental health
