Youth-adult partnerships involve youth and adults working together to improve the systems that affect them. While research on the effects of these partnerships in community mental health promotion is limited, research in other areas demonstrate positive benefits for youth. Brock University researchers examined the New Mentality pilot program to explore what makes these relationships tick, and identify the potential benefit of these partnerships in child and youth community mental health promotion.
