As Individuals, Systems and Communities We Create Stigma With Our Tendencies To Label People; Which Gives Way For Us To Isolate And Exclude (LIE). Together, We can stop the L.I.E™

FYRT is an independent family and youth led organization. The foundation of our work is to build an interconnection between the families and youth receiving services and the public child family-serving agencies that serve our communities, such as: Children's Mental Health, Juvenile Justice, Education, and Child Welfare.

Organization role:
• Provide education to families or youth on issues of interest
• Provide training and mentoring of family members or youth (e.g., to assume leadership roles, act as provider)
• Provide training and presentations to system of care/child serving agencies or community
• Provide technical assistance (e.g., to other family or youth organizations, child serving agencies)
• Recruit family members or youth for positions within child serving agencies
• Organize conferences
• Participate in child serving system/system of care policy-making and leadership groups

Organization type:
• A family-run or youth-guided organization with a current or past affiliation with a System of Care Community of the Comprehensive Community Mental Health Services for Children and Their Families Program (i.e., CMHS System of Care grant site)
