Tips and Tricks to Starting a Young Adult Council
Raphael Mizrahi, B.S. and Tania Duperoy, B.A.
June 13, 2018

Young adult councils are an excellent way of engaging young adults with lived mental health experience to help improve mental health research and services, but they are still underutilized. In this webinar, the value of young adult councils along with in-depth instructions on how to organize one within any organization that serves young adult clients will be explained. We will use the National Youth Advisory Board, a virtual young adult council of the Transitions to Adulthood Center for Research, as well as other in-person councils, to illustrate how our center has benefitted from young adult councils.
