June is Pride Month

Pride Month is a time of celebration. Members of the LGBTQ+ communities gather globally to relish in the joy of acceptance, authentic self-expression, visibility, and positive change. The resistance and rebellion that Pride month emerged from are still active today as allies and community members continue to seek equality and protections against discrimination. While we celebrate, we also acknowledge the change makers that began a movement that has greatly impacted the queer community.

In observance of Pride Month, the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB), Runaway and Homeless Youth (RHY) Program, and the Runaway and Homeless Youth Training and Technical Assistance Center (RHYTTAC) have prepared a list of resources and tools to assist programs in increasing their knowledge and understanding of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) community and how systems impact this specific population.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month

In observance of Mental Health Awareness Month, the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB), Runaway and Homeless Youth (RHY) Program, and the Runaway and Homeless Youth Training and Technical Assistance Center (RHYTTAC) have prepared a list of resources and tools to assist programs in increasing their knowledge and understanding of how housing instability impacts the mental wellbeing of youth and young adults.

Mental health is essential to young people’s overall health. In Protecting Youth Mental Health: The U.S. Surgeon General’s Advisory, it is highlighted that individual, familial, communal, environmental, and societal factors have all been identified as impacting mental health. In the same advisory, it is noted that youth who are supported in meeting their mental health needs are at a reduced risk of violence, substance use, suicide, and other harmful behaviors. For youth who are vulnerable to mental health challenges, it is important that culturally responsive resources and services are available to meet their specific and unique needs.

For Providers & Direct Care Staff:

Mental welfare is needed for everyone. Your support and dedication to young people are known and appreciated. How you show up to the work is reflective of the care you exhibit for youth. That same care is even more beneficial when reflected internally. Self-care is necessary in the youth service field. It allows you to combat burnout and compassion fatigue, safely address second hard trauma or re-traumatization, and provides you the space and time to receive what you need in order to work well. Self-care is accessible to everyone. In fact, there are six types of self-care: Emotional, Practical, Physical, Mental, Social, and Spiritual. Ensure you are meeting your needs on all levels, start where simplest, and continue until overall you feel healthy.
