A Community Approach to Improving Youth Well-being

Michael Hempseed, The Collaborative Trust

A Community Approach to Improving Youth Well-being. It is said that it takes a village to raise a child. To raise healthy and successful young people they need the input of many different people from family members, to extended family, but then also help from school, doctors and in some cases social services. No one service can provide all the help a young person needs. So we need to have a collaborative approach. In this workshop you will learn - How to find out what other services exist that can really help a young person. - How to overcome a “turf war” and possessiveness. - Effective communication between agencies and how to understand the privacy act.
