Here is what our new
Youth Ambassadors
Channon and Rochelle
have to say ...

"We are both looking forward to having a positive impact on the work that’s already been done in the service."


"In my youth ambassador role, I will advocate for the
voice of young people in the work we do at Bromley Y.

Working collaboratively with the teams at Bromley Y, I
will learn how we work with young people, parents and
staff in the community and ensure that the voice of the
young person is taken into consideration when changes
are made to the service we provide. To achieve this, I
am looking forward to supporting work in schools,
assisting with outreach projects and being part of new
and exciting developments within the charity.

My experience in education entails supporting children
with barriers to learning, including social and emotional
issues, special educational needs, and other general
health concerns. I have gained insight into the holistic
approaches used to support mental health that focus on
the needs of the individual, including talking therapies,
mindfulness, cognitive behavioural techniques, and
therapeutic group interventions. Therefore, I desire to
work with a person-centred charity that cares about
mental health outcomes and strives to impact the local
community and beyond."


"I am passionate about being the voice of the young
person because I was once a young person dealing with
mental health difficulties and engaging with services like
Bromley Y really helped to save my life.

Now, I want to be an advocate for young people as I
have lived-in experience and have a good sense of
understanding about what may be going on in a young
person’s mind when dealing with emotional difficulties
and I would like to be the voice of the young person who
feels as if they are not being heard or are afraid to speak

By working with the rest of the service, I want to ensure
we are all on the same page as young people and
understand all aspects to deliver the best support
possible and for that support to be effective.

I plan to liaise with the Mental Health Support Teams
(MHST) who go into schools and help to deliver
presentations, collect feedback and data about how we
can improve the service, what we offer and deliver.
including making sure the young person's voice is being
included and seen on all social media platforms."

'Thank you' Channon and Rochelle
