Batyr is a community, a herd, a passionate group of young people united through vulnerability, respect and a drive to change the conversation around mental health & increase help-seeking rates.

On the youth mentor podcast today we’ve got Steph, the national program manager and Suzy, one of the lived experience speakers from Batyr. Batyr is all about giving a voice to the elephant in the room by smashing the stigma around mental health and creating positive behavioural change for young Australians now and in the future.

In this chat, we hear about their incredible free program ‘Being Herd’ which empowers young people to give a voice to their story of mental-ill health, as well as their programs in schools, universities and organisations; their tips for parents or adults who have noticed behavioural changes in their young person and how they can be a beacon of support and love for them.
