Integrated youth services (IYS) often provide a “one-stop-shop” for mental health, physical health, substance use and addictions, education, vocational supports, housing, and other social services. IYS initiatives meet the needs of youth and young adults aged 12-25 across multiple domains of their lives by reducing systemic barriers, including the division between paediatric and adult services, and limited cross-sector collaboration.
Frayme has had the unique opportunity to learn from 10 international IYS initiatives to gain ‘on the ground’ practical information that’s largely unavailable in the literature.
This webinar is the first in a 6-part series and will present aggregated findings on how these IYS are organized and operated. Considerations discussed will include partner and stakeholder engagement, rationales for establishment, organizational principles, governance and leadership structures, funding, and barriers and enablers. There will be time at the end of the presentation for questions.
This webinar will allow participants to:
- Learn about the scope of integrated youth services (IYS), including the principles, processes, and funding sources that guide and facilitate their establishment
- Differentiate between IYS networks and single sites, and understand their governance structures and responsibilities
- Explore enablers, barriers, and sustainability concerns related to IYS
This webinar is hosted by Frayme.
