Hull’s Voices of Lived Experience – Child, Youth and Family Advisory Council (Hull’s Voices) partners with young people and families who have received services from Hull and listens to their experiences to develop key strategies that support positive growth within our programs. Hull and Hull’s Voices council members break down the barrier that separates families from professionals so they can collectively work together to give the community the best possible mental health services. They listen to young people and families’ stories and experiences with the upmost respect and integrity.
Most of the council is made of lived-experienced members; lived-experienced meaning real people who have received services through Hull Services.
It was important to us that we not just listen to what our young people and families have to say — but also give them a voice at the table working directly with our Agency’s senior leadership, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) accreditation report, and other areas within the Agency.
