Under the spotlight: Youth Reference Group member, Clancy

Learn more about Clancy, and why she loves being a part of the Youth Focus Youth Reference Group (YRG).

1. Why did you become involved in the Youth Focus Group?
I became involved in the YRG because I increasingly saw young people around me being affected by mental illness. I wanted to play a part in ensuring that mental health services that are available are tailored to the needs of young people.

2. What’s the best thing about being a member of the Youth Reference Group?
Being part of the YRG is an amazing opportunity to interact with like-minded individuals who want to work together to make the young Western Australians feel valued and supported. I also really enjoy being able to have a tangible impact on the Youth Focus direction, and feel very honoured to represent the youth of our society.

3. Where do you see Youth Focus in five years?
In five years, I hope that Youth Focus immediately comes to mind for young people during difficult times. With the help of the YRG, I want to see more youth-friendly events ensuring that young people are exposed to the great work that Youth Focus does.
