Youth MOVE Illinois (YMIL)

  • Youth MOVE Illinois (YMIL) is the Illinois Chapter of a national organization devoted to improving services and systems for youth and families that may be struggling with emotional and/or behavioral issues. It aims to unite the voices of youth and families who have experience in various systems including mental health, juvenile justice, education and child welfare. The youth are given a platform to share their perspectives on mental health and the services they receive, the additional services they feel are needed, and their school, community and home life. The goal is to empower the youth and shape the service delivery system.
