Youth In Mind envisions a mental health system that involves youth in decision making on individual, as well as local, statewide, and national policy levels, to provide all youth with developmentally appropriate psycho-education, empowerment, alternative health care, and peer support services.
Youth In Mind improves the lives of young people, ages 12-28, impacted by the mental health system through education, advocacy, and collaboration. “Nothing About Us, Without Us”
Using a strengths-based approach to implement positive change to the mental health system, Youth In Mind will ensure a cultural shift locally, statewide, and beyond; which means all mental health services, policies, and decision-making are developed in partnership with young people. We believe that a positive and healthy transition to adulthood is made possible by eliminating stigma, extending respect to all constituents, and advocating non-restrictive services.
