It’s Queensland Youth Week and to celebrate, Sunshine Coast Council is launching a new podcast targeted at youth and the new Speak Up Engage Next Generation Health & Wellbeing podcast, delivered by three young local residents.

The Speak Up Engage Next Generation Health & Wellbeing podcast is being delivered as part of Australia’s number one health podcast network, The Wellness Couch. Listeners will hear about a range of topics from developing purpose and passion to tips for coping with depression.

Community Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said the podcast was an exciting example of empowering young people to deliver tools for their peers and is another way council is delivering on its vision for a healthy, smart, creative community.

“The young presenters are being mentored by both Carren Smith who is a motivational speaker, author and trainer and council’s Youth Community Development Officer,” Cr McKay said.

Carren founded not-for-profit organisation Spirit Hive to help people going through personal challenges. She is a survivor of the 2002 Bali bombings.

Carren co-hosts a successful podcast on the Wellness Couch podcast network Up for a Chat which covers health, wellbeing, relationships and mindset.

Carren Smith said she was excited to be partnering with council to deliver the podcast and had enjoyed working with Nicola Dickman, Toby Bogert and Erica Burchett to confidently deliver on a range of topics from overcoming limiting beliefs to self-expression and communication.
 
“I encourage young people to tune in each week to gain an insight to how other young people are handling issues and sharing their tips of how to have a purpose with passion,” Carren said.

Young people are encouraged to join the conversation by heading to the Speak Up Engage Facebook page and to tune into the podcast visit the Wellness Couch podcast network website.
