Position Subcommittee Head
Impact Statement AMPLIFY NS is currently recruiting youth mental health advocates who are interested in creating change for their community in the mental healthcare system.

AMPLIFY NS is a youth-led, grassroots organization that connects mental health professionals and services with equity-seeking youth in Nova Scotia. Our group understands that while accessing mental health resources is a general challenge for youth of all backgrounds, under-represented groups face additional barriers that often discourage them from seeking help. AMPLIFY NS seeks to empower Nova Scotians youth between the ages of 16-25 who self-identify as belonging to one or more equity-seeking groups. These groups include but are not limited to Black, Indigenous, People of Colour, LGBTQ2SIA+, and low-income communities.

We believe that creating channels for these voices to be heard is of crucial importance to breaking down existing barriers and bringing cultural competency to our healthcare system.
Description Subcommittee heads can expect to:
1. Recruit and organize a team of advocates based on common
interest. Interest groups may include but are not limited to, LGBTQ2SIA+ rights, Indigenous rights, BIPOC cultural competency, and the affordability of services.

3. Lead events to raise mental health awareness within their communities
4. Participate in a yearly round table discussion and engage with local mental health service providers, political decision-makers, and equity-seeking groups.
