Mental Health is at the core of all of our resources. Youth In Mind members engage communities in conversations about mental health using World Cafe and/or Open Space Technology format that works with the audience to co-develop the agenda. The format uses dialogue-based methods to engage in critical conversations. After each conference, summit and event YIM produces mental health resources and reports that provide comprehensive information on the topics that help to guide programming or policy decisions. Below is a report that was created to gain from the voices of people impacted by the mental health system to provide their opinions on what the gaps are and what the community solutions are.
