|Improving mental health and well-being for young people is a top priority in Interact for Health’s new strategic plan, guiding our work for 2023-2027. They believe tackling such a complex problem starts by listening to those closest to the problem and co-creating solutions with community members and partners. As such, they want to learn from community partners about efforts currently underway, key challenges and opportunities to work together to accelerate progress.
|If your organization works to improve the mental health of young people ages 0-24 in our 20-county region, they hope you will take 30 minutes to complete the Youth Mental Health Partner Survey. To encourage participation, they will randomly select 10 eligible organizations that complete the survey for a $5,000 contribution. View the raffle guidelines.
|Interact for Health will use this survey to identify potential partners for future funding opportunities, convening learning networks, and mobilizing advocacy. They will also share key findings so that they can better understand the scope of current efforts. If you have any questions, please contact Ross Meyer, Vice President of Strategy.
|The deadline for submission is 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4.
