Building Bridges...

Advancing partnerships among residential and community-based service providers, youth and families to improve lives.

Welcome to the Building Bridges Initiative.

Building Bridges is a national initiative working to identify and promote practice and policy that will create strong and closely coordinated partnerships and collaborations between families, youth, community - and residentially - based treatment and service providers, advocates and policy makers to ensure that comprehensive mental health services and supports are available to improve the lives of young people and their families.

In all that we do, we strive to advance partnerships among residential and community-based service providers, youth, and families to improve lives.
