Astrid has been involved with Project Health Resilience (PHR) since 2019.

“The young people were keen and interested in the talks and they felt that all the sessions had a relevance in their day-to-day lives. They asked questions which have given us a better understanding of their knowledge, the way they perceive their own health, and how our healthcare system does or doesn’t support them.
With their invaluable input and our collaboration with specialists in these areas, we have been able to adapt our talks to tackle gaps in their knowledge and provide them with reassurance surrounding their doubts in accessing healthcare. We hope we have empowered them to advocate for themselves and to understand their right to access healthcare and, in part, build their trust in healthcare professionals and the wider system."
