Are you aged 16-25? Fed up of the mental health system failing to meet young people’s needs?
Raise your voice as a Rights Advocate for Our Minds Our Future.
Our Minds Our Future is a campaign led by young people fighting for a mental health system that meets your rights.
Make Our Rights Reality trains teams of young people as ‘Rights Advocates’ to know their rights in the mental health system, so they can lead the campaign in their local area.
Could you be one?
The role can fit around your other commitments and can help you build skills and experience. As well as the training we offer, you’ll be part of a local team and a national network of young people campaigning on the same issue, so you’ll always have support.
How does it work?
Right now, we’re building new Rights Advocate teams in Manchester, Leeds, Bath and Southampton. Every team needs four leaders – in strategy, communications, events and fundraising. MORR gives special training to build each leader’s skills and support your team’s campaign.
