What is it?
Building the Bridge is CYDI's initiative to identify barriers to access for children and families in need and resources that are available, as well as determine ways to work together with key community stakeholders to strengthen the youth mental health care infrastructure in Central Alabama.
Becoming a community partner with CYDI will keep you informed about future workshops, events, resources, and research. Additionally, community partners can team up with CYDI for working with us on future work (research, helping host community events, etc.)
It takes a community to build a stronger system, and we want your help in doing that! Local stakeholders, including community leaders, mental health care professionals, school personnel, and parents are welcome and encouraged to get involved with the Building the Bridge initiative!
