The Southwest Council continues its focus on youth mental and behavioral health as it simultaneously hopes to expand its impact on youth well-being more generally. Most recently, the Council continued its multi-year funding to its grant partners across the region that offer various resiliency and life skills programming, as well as suicide and other prevention efforts. Along with continuing its support for current partners in four of the region’s five counties, the Council also recommended funding for mental health and resiliency initiatives in San Juan County.
