The Young Professionals Learning Community (PLC)
Person-centered care, sometimes called individualized or patient-centered care, means that recipients of services have control over their care, including the amount, duration, scope of services, and choice of providers. During this month's learning community, we'll have discussions about how to support the youth we work with in a collaborative way to ensure young people are driving the development of their personal goals. We'll also learn about maximizing strategies such as shared decision-making models and a developmental relationships framework. We’ll also discuss respectful and responsive ways to individualize planning for youth and young adults.
These monthly forums are an opportunity to connect with others who share concern and passion for developmentally appropriate and appealing systems and supports for youth and young adults. Maybe you're a peer support provider or a new professional with lived experience working in mental health advocacy. Whatever your role, if you are a young adult professional seeking to make peer-to-peer connections and develop your professional capacity, this learning community offers a space to acquire and build skills with other mental health workforce professionals.
We hope you will join us in collective skill-building, engaging conversations, and young professional networking.
The target audience for this learning community is young professionals working with youth and young adults of transition age.
