Now more than ever, we know we are not alone. This global pandemic has pulled us together with a singular focus. We believe in the strength of connection, collaboration, and consensus, now more than ever. Just like your community is pulling together partners to face the current pandemic, so are we.
To respond to this pandemic, and future challenges that will inevitably face us, we need strong partners. Partnership to us means we are in relationships that build connections, fosters authentic engagement, and provides action-focused leadership.
Partnership in action means that we work in collaboration with each other. This is particularly important to Youth MOVErs because we bring valuable lived experience perspectives to the table and steward a multitude of youth voices in our work. We want to be equally represented at partnership tables and to be emboldened to truly drive change. This means we can be demanding, but vital, partners in creating positive systems change!
Youth MOVE National has very strong partners and allies in youth mental health spaces, and each of them is contributing to the COVID-19 effort with resources and supports. We want to make sure you know what’s available from each of them!
