Abstract

This tip sheet is designed for use by youth- and young-adult-led organizations that include young people with lived experience in the mental health system in their membership. The recommendations and quotes came from a series of interviews with young adult leaders from advocacy groups that focus on mental health challenges or living in foster care. The action steps for achieving policy change relayed by the interviewees include: 1) Develop a clear focus; 2) Seek information; 3) Establish partnerships; 4) Find champions; 5) Emphasize lived experience; and 6) Never give up.
