Young people in the Lowood region are being asked to help launch a new project to support youth mental health and wellbeing in the area.
Somerset Regional Council has joined forces with West Moreton Health and Darling Downs and West Moreton PHN to develop community-led initiatives that improve health outcomes for young people.
The project’s first step is the ‘Living in Lowood Survey’ – a 10-minute survey for young people aged between 14 and 21 about their own experiences living in the Lowood area and what they would like to see happening in the community to support youth health and wellbeing.
Somerset Regional Council Mayor Cr Graeme Lehmann said supporting the wellbeing of young people in the Lowood and surrounding communities was a priority for the Council.
“We recognise that the mental health and wellbeing of young people is a high priority in the Lowood area,” Cr Lehmann said.
“We also know that there is no one better placed to tell us what could be done to better support their wellbeing than young people themselves and the Youth Wellbeing Survey will give us the opportunity to hear first-hand from this group on what they would like to see happening in our community.”
“If you are a young person living in Lowood and surrounding areas, I strongly encourage you to get involved.”
