Youth Engagement

 Since shifting to a system of care approach the major focus is improving the quality and consistency of behavioral health treatment for youth in Arkansas by making them and family members partners in their care and future outcomes. A system of care approach offers a coordinated network of the specific community-based services and supports needed to meet the individual needs of the child, youth and family. Emphasis is given to strengthening ties to community by providing opportunities for interaction and involvement in local organizations. Youth MOVE (Motivating Others through Voices of Experience) Arkansas has proven to be one organization highly endorsed by Arkansas youth and their families.   

Youth MOVE Arkansas is a statewide youth-led organization devoted to improving services and systems that supports positive growth and development by uniting the voices and causes of individuals who have lived experience in various systems.
