Join the Turn2me Parents Advisory Panel

 

 

Turn2me.org is expanding its online professional mental health services to young people and families and we need your help and advice to ensure this new service is relevant and accessible to everyone across Ireland.

 

About Turn2me

 

Turn2me is an Irish charity established in 2009 that provides free professional mental health support online. Through our website Turn2me.org we provide:

 

  • Information to help people understand what they are going through, that they are not alone and how to get through tough times
  • Peer support a safe space where people can share their problems and support others
  • Online support groups facilitated by a professional accredited counsellor where people can chat to others with similar experiences and share strategies for getting through tough times
  • Counselling online via instant messaging, email or video with a professional accredited counsellor 

 

In 2020 Turn2me will be extending these services to young people and families but we need your help to make sure the service provides relevant, reliable, quality mental health services for everyone in Ireland.

 

What is the Parents Advisory Panel?

 

The Turn2me Parents Advisory Panel is a diverse group of Parents and Guardians passionate about shaping the future of mental health services in Ireland. Becoming part of the Parents Advisory Panel will mean you will get to take part in shaping and delivering this exciting new service by:

 

  • Discussing and advising on issues related to mental health, parents/guardians and young people
  • Workshopping ideas around website functionality, psychoeducation and service delivery
  • Feeding back on Turn2me services, what is working well and what can be improved
  • Promoting Turn2me and its services



What does it involve?

 

The Parents Advisory Panel will meet for four half day workshops*:

 

Saturday 18 April

Saturday 20 June

Saturday 12 September

Saturday 7 November

 

Workshops will take place from 10.00 - 2.00 in a Dublin City Centre location. Lunch will be provided. 

 

(* these are the proposed dates for the workshops but if social distancing recomendations are still in space we will come up with some more creative ways of getting your input to help shape this new service)

Do I need any special skills or knowledge?

  • You are passionate about mental health and making a positive difference!
  • You enjoy working collaboratively as part of a team environment
