Improving the Lives of Young People with Serious Mental Health Conditions Through Research & Training
Upcoming Webinar: "Collaboration Between Youth Partners and Family Partners in Wraparound"
Youth/Young Adult Peer Support is a relatively new addition to Wraparound. Programs sometimes struggle with understanding how teamwork is best enhanced when there is both a family partner and a youth partner involved. This webinar focuses on optimizing the connection between youth and family peer support partners when they are working together on Wraparound teams. It will cover key strategies on how to collaborate on addressing common challenges with life scenarios.
The newest e-learning tools from Pathways take the viewer through a video of a real interaction between a provider and a young person, allowing them to stop along the way and explore how the provider's responses can either support or impede the goal of having a youth-driven conversation. It is our goal that youth-service providers use these tools as an opportunity to enhance their skills and to reflect on the "improvables" in their own practice.
Webinar Recording: Using Text and Email with Clients
In this webinar Roy Huggins offered providers an overview of the technical and administrative requirements for the ethical, HIPAA-compliant use of text and email. This webinar was co-hosted by Pathways RTC, Oregon Health & Science University / Portland State University School of Public Health, and the EASA Center for Excellence.
These new Pathways Comics study guides raise questions for discussion and points for reflection about the events in Pathways Comics, Volumes 1 – 3. These study guides are intended to help service providers who work with young people with mental health conditions consider how their own initial engagement and continued work with young people can honor their perspective, prior experiences, and ultimately young people's expertise on their own lives.
Pathways comics are created by and for young adults and the people that care about them. In this set of issues, James and Zoe take a trip to the local drop-in center to use the computers, and James and Jarvis learn about its other services.
Pathways Transition Training Video Briefs: Evaluation Report
