Part of YTI’s mission is to create awareness, educate, and provide resources to Santa Clara County youth and young adults about substance use prevention, mental health, and suicide prevention. Our wonderful participants from open and closed cohort workshops create PSAs (public service announcements) about the topics they are most passionate about from problem statements the County of Santa Clara Behavioral Health Servies provides us with. The following topics, with included resources, are areas of concerns we see among Santa Clara County youth and young adults
