allcove Youth Advisory Group

The Youth Advisory Group’s (YAG) goal to ensure that youth voice and experience is central to the development of the allcove centers aimed at providing mental health support to youth ages 12-25 years old. allcove is a four-year project presented in partnership with Santa Clara County Behavioral Health Services and Stanford University’s Center for Youth Mental Health and Wellbeing.

The YAG is comprised of 24 young people between the ages of 16-25, who represent diversity in race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, lived experience, ability, and socioeconomic status. YAG members provide a better understanding of young peoples’ needs and opinions in order to ensure that we have a meaningful youth space aimed at providing services geared at youth and to reduce stigma in mental health.

YAG members are passionate about affecting change and connecting with other youth to increase access to mental health care in the Bay Area. Their commitment to youth mental health access and focus on youth and community representation make them the ideal group to develop youth-led community-wide outreach efforts.
