Call for Workshop Proposals: Youth Peer Support Action Summit

Doors to Wellbeing and Mental Health America present a national, virtual youth-led summit to unite and inspire youth and young adult leaders in peer support, including peer specialists, program leaders, and advocates.

This summit will address innovative approaches to youth peer support and possibilities for youth involvement within the peer support movement. This will be a chance for youth to identify common interests and priorities for increasing access to peer support for young people nationwide; calling to action the continuation of moving away from mental health stigma and discrimination to acceptance and inclusion.

Together we can continue the peer support movements’ legacy of creating healing and empowering spaces, services and resources that meet the needs of diverse populations throughout the United States- making sure that youth voice is at the table for creating these spaces!

We welcome and invite youth who want to learn more about youth peer support and elevating voices of lived experience to be a part of this event.
