YouthMOVE stands for “Youth Motivating Others through Voices of Experience”. YouthMOVE is devoted to improving services and systems that support positive growth and development by uniting the voices of individuals who have lived experience in various systems including mental health, juvenile justice, education, and child welfare.
YouthMOVE NAMI Clark, Greene and Madison Counties (NAMI CGM):
NAMI CGM’s YouthMOVE population includes young adults18-28 years old. Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. at the Vernon Center, 222 East St., Springfield. For more information on NAMI CGM’s YouthMOVE Chapter contact: email@example.com or 937-322-5600.
NAMI CGM’s YouthMOVE chapter will also meet and collaborate with the statewide YouthMove Council for activities, events and trainings throughout this year and into the next year.
NAMI CGM YouthMOVE works toward the day when all people will recognize and accept the culture of youth, their families, and the communities that serve them in order to be truly culturally competent.
We look forward to the day when youth are no longer treated as numbers, problems or caseloads, but as individuals and humans.
We will all stand as partners: youth, youth advocates, supporters, parents and professionals to see our youth become successful.
