Youth-led Project on Mental Health

Opportunity for 14-25 year olds in Derby and Derbyshire to join an exciting youth-led project on mental health.  

Leaders-Unlocked are currently looking for young people to join MH:2K – a youth-led project addressing mental health. MH:2K empowers 14-25 year olds to:

  • Identify the mental health issues that they see as most important;
  • Engage their peers in discussing and exploring these topics;
  • Work with key local decision-makers to make recommendations for change.

MH:2K is delivered by Leaders Unlocked in association with Derby City Council, Derbyshire County Council, and NHS Derby and Derbyshire CCGs. The project is an integral part of the ongoing work to improve children’s emotional and mental health in the region. Please visit:

MH:2K is aimed at young people aged 14-25, with an interest in mental health who want to make a difference to their community.  They are seeking a diverse group of young people with different life experiences to take part, including those who have personal experience of mental health. We are particularly keen to encourage participation from harder-to-reach and underrepresented groups. 

This is a brilliant opportunity for young people to gain new knowledge, skills and experience. Those who join the MH:2K team will play an important role as ‘Citizen Researchers’ in helping to design and run workshops to engage other young people.

All are welcome to apply. Please feel free to contact if you have questions about the application process. We would very much appreciate it if you could encourage any young person who you feel would benefit from this experience to apply, and support them to fill out the application if needed.

All application documents attached. Please email the form to by Monday 14 October 2019.
