This past Spring, Stars Behavioral Health Group partnered with Project Return Peer Support Network (PRPSN) to host the 6th annual TAY UnConvention. Lorne Wood, Peer Training Specialist and Malia Fontecchio, Stigma Discrimination Reduction Coordinator (PRPSN), hosted the engaging event and over eighty enthusiastic youth, Peer Supporters and TAY staff participated. The packed agenda included brainstorming sessions on advocacy, education and social media, an amazing Open Mic jam, presentations by Dave Leon from Painted Brain, and a Sharing your Story panel. Participants exchanged laughs, support, Tweets, music and helpful resources. Three major areas of TAY oriented resources were identified; advocacy, expressive arts and mental health related apps.
We wanted to make sure that all the UnCon participants, as well as those of you unable to join us could access these cool tools. Click here and let us know of additional ones that you have discovered!
