Parent Volunteers Needed
We are looking for parent volunteers to join a Collaborative Local Action Team on the North Shore. The team consists of local mental health and substance use professionals (Doctors, Clinicians, Counsellors, Teachers, RCMP, community groups) AND youth (18 yrs to 25 yrs) and families who have lived experience in accessing child and youth mental health and/or substance use services and supports. Youth and Families have an important role to play on Local Action Teams and are invited to join as co-members of the team. Youth and Families contribute their lived experience and ideas about the people, services and practices that have helped them when accessing services and supports. Youth and Families will also identify and offer suggestions about the challenges families sometimes face when they need help. This is an opportunity to collaborate WITH Service Providers and work together towards make a difference within the child and youth mental health and substance use community.
