This session is an ECHO format case-based discussion covering the process of assessing readiness for college, accessing accommodations, and preparing youth, with a history of psychosis, to transition to college. Many young people are interested in higher education but are unsure of what that may look like, after receiving a diagnosis of a primary psychotic disorder. We hope to equip attendees with basic knowledge of psychosis spectrum disorders, considerations for a transition to college, and resources for supporting these young adults to achieve success!

This Office Hours series offers a virtual learning space for those leading and coordinating youth engagement efforts in System of Care and Healthy Transitions grant communities, as well as others who are working in and leading youth-run programs and organizations. This includes, but is not limited to: Youth Engagement Specialists, Youth Coordinators, Youth Program Managers, Youth Peers, as well as leaders of Youth MOVE chapters and other youth-run programs that engage youth with lived experience in youth serving systems in change-making. From creating youth programs to exploring youth peer supports, building sustainability plans, to growing partnerships in communities, youth-run program leaders hold many roles.

This monthly space is designed for informal, in-depth conversations and connection with peers in the workspace to ask questions, share resources, best practices, challenges, successes, and a space to receive coaching support from Youth MOVE facilitators.

The mental health system is vast, complex, and often confusing. Peers and Clinicians Together (PACT) is a free monthly series where you can ask anything that’s on your mind of a mental health clinician and peer support!

Whether you have a question of general nature or you work in the field, PACT is open to anyone and held on every third Thursday at 11:30 am – 12:30 pm Pacific Time | 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm Mountain Time | 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm Central Time | 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm Eastern Time, hosted virtually by the National Training and Technical Assistance Center for Child, Youth, and Family Mental Health (NTTAC). Each month, the featured clinician and peer speakers will be prepared to discuss a specific topic that draws on their expertise, but the majority of the session’s time will be an audience-driven Q&A, so bring your questions!


Do you work with children at the local recreational center, support families at a health clinic, or provide guidance to you transitioning out of care?

We want to hear from you!

Submit your proposal to present at the 2024 System of Care Summit – May 14-16, 2023! Learn more:

This year’s theme, “All Systems Go! Taking Action Together” is inspired by the knowledge that all systems should work together to support the well-being of children, youth, and families. When we collaborate broadly, our systems are made anew – new worlds become possible!

To be considered, submit your final proposal online to present in one of our six content areas by November 6, at 11:59pm PDT and make sure your voice is represented!
