Youth of all races, identities and abilities deserve equitable access to mental health supports that are inclusive and responsive to their lived experiences. By sharing power with youth in decision-making, community-based organizations can empower young people to channel their voices of lived experience and create new, more inclusive approaches to improving youth wellbeing.

Meaningful youth-adult partnerships across the nation are inspiring transformational community change to build responsive community support systems that nurture resilience, self-efficacy and mental wellbeing. We practiced these real-world strategies that we hope will empower you to form youth-adult partnerships to achieve a shared vision for youth mental wellbeing.

All youth deserve access to quality mental health supports.
Lived experience is valuable expertise.
Youth voice is a necessary change agent.
