On this episode on your Right to Speak, we continue on the topic of mental health. We talk with Paul Pereira who works in a day treatment substance abuse program for youth. Paul identifies some of the service gaps for young people with mental health challenges; such as, not enough CYCPs in the field and the importance of having services that follow throughout the young person’s life. At the end of the conversation he offers advice to new & future CYCPs, and talks about the most important thing he has learned.
