"People often use words associated with mental illness, like 'depressed' or 'OCD,' in casual conversation as a way to express annoyance, make a joke or explain their feelings. In truth, this is hugely disrespectful to the one in five American adults who experience a mental health condition in a given year."

Do you work for or with an agency that wants to include youth/young adult voice in agency decision-making?
Youth MOVE National and Pathways Research and Training Center have developed an assessment of the extent to which agencies support the meaningful participation of young people in advising and decision making. We're currently recruiting people to help us test the assessment by completing an online survey. -- Click the link below to find out more. If you complete the survey, you can enter a drawing with a 1-in-50 chance of winning a $100 Amazon gift card! And feel free to forward this information to others who may be interested.
Register now for "Multisystemic Therapy for Emerging Adults (MST-EA): Treating Young Adults Who Have Justice Involvement and Behavioral Health Conditions" on March 22 from 1pm – 2pm PST / 4pm – 5pm EST.
This webinar will feature Maryann Davis and Ashli Sheidow. During this webinar, they will discuss MST-EA, its focus on reducing recidivism and improving positive functioning, as well as emerging research on this promising intervention. There currently are no proven interventions to reduce recidivism in young adults, with or without behavioral health conditions. MST-EA focuses on reducing recidivism and increasing the young adults’ positive functioning in the critical areas of emerging adulthood (school completion, employment, independent living, and positive social relationships), as well as simultaneously ensuring treatment and management of mental illness and any co-occurring substance use disorder.
