What Youth MOVE Members Are Saying

Youth MOVE has opened up a myriad of opportunities for me. I testified before the Senate Health and Provider Services Committee at the Indiana State Capitol in support of a bill that established a State Suicide Prevention Coordinator and ensured that schools employ suicide-prevention policies.

Youth MOVE Indiana

Youth MOVE gave me a support network of people I can relate to on an intimate and personal level. They get me. They understand having a mental health condition and trying to maintain a healthy well-being.

Amanda

Youth MOVE Virginia

I have been able to be myself, to be better than I was the day before. I have been able to become more of a leader and I’ve explored and traveled to different places and met new people.
