We believe that the best support comes from someone who has ‘been there’, and who can personally relate to the obstacles, frustrations, joys and celebrations that go along with raising a child with mood, emotional, or behavioral challenges. As parents of children with mood, behavioral, and emotional disorders themselves, our Family Support Partners draw from personal experience and perspective to empower families. Our Youth Peer Support Specialist have personal experience as a youth with mental health challenges. They are trained to support the youth and use their recent experiences to help inspire, mentor, and motivate the youth they are working with. ASK's Calling All Youth (CAY) M.O.V.E. committee gives high school aged youth with emotional, behavioral, or mood disorders the opportunity to come together to reduce stigma through community presentations, impact service providers in Kalamazoo, and develop leadership and life skills.
