The headspace Berri hERO group exists to ensure young people’s voices and opinions remain front and centre in everything we do. hEROs are a group of local young people aged 16-25 who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of young people. Some members of hERO may have experienced their own struggles and other members may have never experienced mental ill health, but all share a commitment to advocate for youth mental health in the Riverland.

Further information about hERO group can be found on our website or have a look through our Facebook/Instagram to see examples of previous hERO activity. You are also welcome to contact our Community Awareness Officer Alysha with any questions via headspace@focusonehealth.com.au or (08) 8582 4422
