Birth to 25 Advisory Commission

Pierce County is forming a  ‘ Birth to 25 Advisory Commission’  to help shape the future for Pierce County residents under the age of 25.  
According to Carol Mitchell,  senior counsel for Pierce County’s Justice Services  “Pierce County needs a diverse, thoughtful and engaged group of community members to help us formulate a transformational plan for children, youth and families.”  She also thinks that  NAMI Pierce County members’  lived experiences in  areas such as mental health, substance abuse,  juvenile and young adult criminal justice, or foster care could enrich and bring a vital perspective to the commission’s discussions.    

Learn more about this opportunity to shape the future of those under 25  by visiting the ​ Birth to 25 Advisory Board web page​.  You can apply to become a board member by clicking on  the “Apply Now”  tab to complete and submit an application.
