Families, Communities, and Social Systems
We youth and family well-being by strengthening systems so children, youth, and families—especially those in tough circumstances—can thrive. We work within and foster collaboration across systems–mental health/substance abuse, juvenile justice, child welfare, health and education, strengthening their capacity to use evidence–based strategies. Using research and data, we plan, transform and evaluate policies and practices and design new studies to measure impact and generate new knowledge. We engage stakeholders and consumers, enabling their voices to shape the policies and services that affect them.
