“Youth MOVE is important to me because without a network of leaders influencing change, our passion for systems change could be stagnant. Youth MOVE is the best at collaborating with systems to ensure youth and young adults with mental health challenges are provided the opportunities to gain resources and knowledge needed to live a normal life. Youth MOVE puts the experiences and the voices of the youth and young adults with lived experience at the forefront of their movement to ensure future generations hopefully grow up knowing that mental health challenges are normal and shouldn't be stigmatizedJeremy
