Calling middle school students who are interested in advocating for positive change in their community!
Students interested in mental health issues or with lived experience are encouraged to apply for the NYS Youth Mental Health Advisory Board.
This initiative emerged following last year's statewide youth mental health listening tour and Youth Mental Health Summit. During those engagement sessions, young people communicated that they wanted their voices to be heard, and in response, Governor Hochul created the Youth Mental Health Advisory Board as part of the 2024 State of the State. The Governor's Youth Mental Health Advisory Board will ensure that youth-informed best practices continue to be incorporated into New York’s public behavioral health programs and initiatives.
