NCWD/Youth Offers Publications on Mental Health Needs of Youth

Youth with mental health needs often face unemployment, underemployment, and discrimination when they enter the workforce. Employment data show that individuals with serious mental illness have the lowest level of employment of any group of people with disabilities. The National Collaborative on Workforce and Disability for Youth (NCWD/Youth) offers several publications that outline practical information and resources for youth service practitioners. In addition, they provide policymakers, from the program to the state level, with information to help them address system and policy obstacles in order to improve service delivery systems for youth with mental health needs.
