CMHCI Parent and Youth Partners

Collective Impact Partners (CIPs)

The parent/caregiver and youth partners, or CIPs, bring decades of lived experience to their participation and leadership in the Children’s Mental Health Collective Impact Executive Council meetings and workgroups.  With their insights and guidance, state agencies and other collaborating partners are better able to recognize gaps in services, deficient programs, and unhelpful or cumbersome policies and practices.

CIPs meet before each Executive Council meeting to review meeting content and goals and then reconvene after the Executive Council meetings to discuss meeting highlights and next steps.  On the months that the Executive Council does not meet, the CIPs gather for training, sharing information, and building relationships.
