Partnering and Investing in Youth-Run Organizations: The Why and How
Brie Masselli, MA, Youth MOVE National, Portland, ME; Lydia Proulx, BSW, Youth MOVE National, Worcester, MA

In this session, Youth MOVE National will bring youth advocates and adult partners together for an exploratory conversation around best practices for partnership and investment in youth-run organizations working to improve social systems. This session will examine both the why and the how of partnerships with youth-run organizations for the community at large, youth service providers, and systems of care, so that all can work collaboratively to improve outcomes for youth and young adults.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for All? Using CBT within a Tiered Model of Mental Health Supports in Schools
Linda M. Raffaele Mendez, PhD, School Psychology Program, College of Education, University of South Florida, Tampa, FL

The purpose of this presentation is to describe how cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) can be used within a multi-tiered system of student mental health supports. Tier 1 includes social-emotional learning (SEL) for all students within a school with progress monitoring to determine which students need additional supports or services. Tier 2 includes group-based interventions for students who are at-risk for or showing early signs of mental health concerns (e.g., anger management, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress). Finally, Tier 3 involves individual counseling using a structured approach (as described in Beck, 2011) for youth with significant mental health concerns. Participants will learn about evidence-based interventions available for use at each tier as well as how to manage movement between tiers. Additionally, systems-level issues including funding options, teacher training, and outreach to families will be discussed.
