Is there opportunities for peer specialists or people with lived experience to help engage the underserved populations and or provide transportation for rural communities?
Dr. Morgan Medlock

We can discuss this aspect, Justin.

I guess this is more of a comment than a question. When centering lived experiences of the people in the communities that access our programs and services we often go into these communities and are asking them to do a lot of labor for us for free. This is something that has always bothered me and it seems that whenever I bring it up there’s not enough funds to assist with this. To be clear, I would want to pay people in the community for sharing their stories/insights/suggestions.
Dr. Morgan Medlock
01:03:25
Exactly, Amelia. I can speak a bit on this. Our communities deserve more than the role of participating in listening sessions.

Yes, these are all great points and suggestions. I would just like to see more funds set aside for actual payment in addition to all of these other great opportunities. Thank you all for you input!

Including the youth voice is critical. The Healthy Transitions grant supports youth advisor paid positions across the state to organize and implement a shared decision making approach that centers and raises transition age youth (16-25) voice, focusing on youth with intersectional identities and groups that have been historically excluded from access to services in an effort to amplify young adult voices that are representative of the state of Colorado.

CYMHTA also pays youth and family members who sit on the 27-67 Board. This Board also has upcoming vacancies, and I am working with Rene on a recruitment plan to ensure the Board has representation from all Coloradans.
