Our youth council for children's mental health, Hawaii Youth Helping Youth is comprised of youth ages 14-25 who have first-hand experience with special education, mental health, foster care and/or the juvenile justice system. The council meets monthly to share their experiences and ideas in an effort to make things better for other children, youth and young adults in Hawaii. Click here for the HYHY application to become a youth council member and be heard! Join HFAA and become involved with the Children's Mental Health Matters campaign! The campaign is a comprehensive national grassroots initiative geared toward educators, primary care providers and families to increase their understanding that children's mental health disorders are real, common and treatable.
