What is the Mental Health Hackathon?

The Eastern Academic Health Science Network (EAHSN) aims to support the public in helping to shape local health and care services. One of the ways that they do this is through hosting the East of England Citizen Senate. The Citizen Senate would like to better represent young people’s views, and so are inviting ten 1419 year olds to join as Youth Members.

We are hosting a Mental Health Hackathon to give young people the chance to find out about more and to see if they’re interested in joining the Citizen Senate. In addition to meeting like-minded individuals, your students will be given the opportunity to explore the issues regarding young people and mental health, and consider possible ways to tackle these important issues.

Optional site tours will be available at 9.30am and 3.30pm, with the event kicking off at 10am.

You will be welcome to arrive from 9.15am and grab a cup of tea. Lunch will be provided.

Who can get involved?

Young people aged 14–19 years old who live in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Essex or Hertfordshire. They should have a desire to influence change in their community, value differences and be able to identify and challenge discrimination.

Joining the Citizen Senate as Youth Members may also appeal to young people who are considering a career in health services or policy, or have personal experience of NHS services either as a service user, or as a family member or friend of service users.
