DESCRIPTION:

We wrap up our webinar series about youth engagement by hearing directly from youth! This is your chance to ask them all the questions you still have about working and partnering with youth. Thank you for joining our mission to help make sure youth voice is included in the decisions and policies that impact them!

 

Wisconsin PATCH (Providers and Teens Connecting for Health) is a collaboration of youth and adults that believe programs and policies for youth should include youth. They encourage young people to raise their voices to create positive change, and have programs and resources to EDUCATE, ENGAGE, and EMPOWER others to do the same.

 

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Identify successful ways to partner with youth in their mental health and healthcare
  • Explore ways to include youth voice in decision and policy making
