Think4Brum

Think4Brum (T4B) is the youth advisory group for Forward Thinking Birmingham (FTB), our 0-25s mental health service. T4B gives young people, especially those who have used our services, an opportunity to get directly involved in FTB, helping us to shape the design and delivery of our services. We provide you with the support and encouragement to have your say, as well as offering training opportunities and the chance to get involved in lots of different activities. You can be involved as much or as little as you'd like.

Think4Brum members have been involved in:

  • Co-design of a Mental Health Journal/Passport
  • Involvement in mental health research within the Trust and with partners including the University of Birmingham
  • Supporting staff training
  • Staff recruitment, including on interview panels
  • Taking part in service improvement events
  • Attending and delivering content at national conferences
  • Directorate-level decision-making bodies

Who can join?

T4B welcomes all young people aged 16-25 who are eligible to access FTB (by having a Birmingham-based GP), are passionate about mental health and wellbeing, and who wish to develop and improve the service for other young people, their family and friends. You do not have to commit to all meetings, but should make as many as you can.
