Help design digital technologies for young people

Help design digital technologies for young people

Orygen Digital is the digital mental health division of Orygen. We’re always working to create new and better technology that genuinely helps young people who’ve struggled with their mental health to feel better and build the lives they want. We have a team of researchers, software engineers, psychologists, designers, artists and peer specialists who work together to develop these digital tools.  

We’re always on the lookout for young people with different mental health experiences who might be interested in working with us across a range of projects. This might involve individual or group consultations to hear lived experience perspectives about new digital products and research ideas, through to co-design of new technologies and advising on research projects.  

Why get involved?

In collaboration with youth advisors, we hope to develop new technologies that have a real impact on young people struggling with their mental health. We understand that there is no one with a closer understanding of themselves than young people. Through our participation program, we aim to empower young people to work with us and shape services that are for them. By contributing your voice to our projects, you are supporting us to develop more equitable and collaborative services for other young people across Australia.

Our youth advisors are volunteer roles that are reimbursed for their participation in activities through honorariums.

Whether it be for our flagship online therapy platform, MOST, our smartphone app Mello, or our range of virtual reality treatments, we’re keen to hear from you, if you’re interested in hearing about new opportunities.

  • experience of a young person accessing mental health support;
