Mental Health Youth Bill of Rights: The Time for Youth Voice is Now
As part of the 2009 Portland National Youth Summit, a Mental Health Bill of Rights was created by young adult leaders from across the United States. They hope this Mental Health Youth Bill of Rights will be adopted by organizations such as Youth MOVE and SAMHSA and displayed in every doctor’s office, counseling center, and organization that serves youth, ages 14-25, with mental health needs. To strengthen this document, Youth Summit participants are asking for additional feedback and support from anyone involved in the mental health network – professionals, consumers, allies, etc.
