headspace Tweed Heads is having a Wear it Purple Day movie night on Friday, August 26, at the Hoyts Tweed Head cinema, starting around 5.30pm.
Wear it Purple Day is an annual LGBTIQA+ awareness day especially for young people, based in Australia. Supporters wear purple to celebrate diversity and young people from the LGBTIQA+ community. The Day is organised by Wear it Purple, a student run, not-for-profit organisation, providing presentations and workshops
headspace Tweed Heads is inviting people to come long, listen to one of our young people speak, perhaps a panel and then watching the movie Happiest Season. The event is a gold coin donation.
Happiest Season is about a young woman, Abby, who plans to propose to her girlfriend, Harper, in front of Harper’s family members. But she is in for a shock when she learns that Harper is yet to come out to her parents.
Youth Advisory Group
headspace Tweed Heads is also looking for young people aged 16-25 who want to be involved in Youth Advisory Group (YAG).
The YAG is a key part of our service, they help direct us with sitting in on job interviews for employees, giving feedback about the service, co-designing and assist with organising, facilitating, and supporting events.
The group is space for young people to come along and contribute to the centre, their community and connect with other young people passionate about mental health. The YAG meets every second Wednesday for 2 hours with food provided and facilitated by me and another worker, I have attached a flyer that has a QR code that takes young people to the EOI for the group.
