This presentation will discuss the formation of a novel and innovative version of a standard Youth Advisory Council (YAC). This particular YAC adds a twist to the traditional means of involving youth by creating a council combining voices of individuals served who have two very different diagnoses: those with an emotional/behavioral disorder (EBD) and those with an autism/intellectual disability (ASD/IDD). Spanning across 3 states, this internal YAC has been established to hear the voices of and to teach leadership principles and skills those who are receiving the services offered by Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health.
