Young people who have experienced mental health issues will tour Australia sharing their stories as part of a $47 million funding boost to headspace.

The head office of the youth mental health organisation - which runs 107 support centres for young people nationally - will get the bulk of the funding over the coming three years.

About $2 million of the money will be used to help eight young people who have experienced mental health issues share their stories, including through a travelling roadshow.
