There is strength in partnership. We are committed to the vision, goals, objectives, and strategies of YouthWell in order to serve youth and families in our community.
Each organization needs to be able to identify their strengths and weaknesses so we can begin to identify the gaps in services.
Explore solutions. Focus on the best solutions for the problem, not the best for the individual agency. How do we create a continuum of care that removes barriers to accessing services and supports warm-handoffs between providers so that we can help our youth before the crisis?
Listen and learn. Ask parents. Ask students. Ask educators. Can all youth access the existing services? What are the barriers? Are the existing programs meeting the need or are more services needed?
Did the services help? We need quality and not just quantity. Check back with those utilizing the services and ask how we can continue to improve.
