AIM Youth Mental Health is advocating for children who are suffering from lack of resources, guidance, and clinical research. The division implementing this project is the outreach program. The intern and team will passionately work together to make this event successful by creating bilingual fliers that share information about the agency's programs and training. Depression and suicide are the most common issues occurring in Monterey county as of today and has been affecting many families. Providing these resources will unite and educate professionals, parents, and students about school programs available for youths and measures for adults as well. The most important findings was being able to reach out to more than 500 people and advocate for youths. Upcoming recommendations to make even more of an effective change is to have a primary individual at events enrolling parents into our training instead of only informing them.
