Virtual Family & Youth Workshops  

Family & Youth Leadership

Children's Behavioral Health Policy Academy 

This Virtual Policy Academy will provide an opportunity for families, youth, and advocates to discuss the current state to access children's behavioral health and other needed services in Rhode Island and it's impact on children, youth and families.  We will share who are the responsible state agencies, policy boards, and agencies responsible for policy and service delivery.  We will review state funding and legislative process and strategies for policy and practice change.  It is our hope that family, youth leaders and advocates will continue to stay engaged  in our monthly Statewide Family & Youth Advisory Board meetings.  It is our goal to develop a family and youth driven children's behavioral health state action plan.
