Changing the Rules: A Guide for Youth and Young Adults with Mental Health Conditions Who Want to Change Policy

The NIDILRR-funded Research and Training Center for Pathways to Positive Futures: Building Self-Determination and Community Living and Participation has developed a new policy guide, Changing the Rules: A Guide for Youth and Young Adults with Mental Health Conditions Who Want to Change Policy. This policy guide is written for youth and young adult-led groups and organizations that want to make changes in mental health policies that affect them and other transition-age youth. The interactive guide provides an overview of the policy cycle and describes the activities that are usually accomplished in each step. This project is also supported by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
