In 2019, yli is partnering with youth and the San Mateo County Behavioral Health and Recovery Services to help reduce stigma associated with mental health in transition-aged youth (15-25 years).

Working closely with county agencies, community organizations and peers, youth participants will provide invaluable insights, feedback and ideas on the development of a series of apps designed to educate youth about mental health and increase their access to care by connecting them to in-person services. The youth participants will also assist with outreach and implementation of approved apps across the county.

As Tech Ambassadors for the project, youth will gain:

  • Technology literacy 
  • Teamwork
  • Interpersonal communication skills
  • App analysis skills 
  • Public Speaking skills
  • Community outreach and engagement 
  • Facilitations and training skills
  • Understanding of Mental Health barriers in San Mateo County
