The February Results Review focused on reducing recidivism by increasing the resilience of youth in our Juvenile Rehabilitation system. We learned about how complex stress and trauma creates patterns in the brain that lead to unhealthy behaviors, as well as what communities can do to build resilient youth. We had an overview of current data, rates of substance use disorder, and behavioral health treatment needs as well as learned how youth from Green Hill School are directly impacting the trauma-informed training of staff. We also learned about guided pathways for skill-building and educational opportunities that lead to employment, and heard from a young man who has successfully completed those programs. Finally, the Office of Homeless Youth talked about how youth who’ve experienced housing instability while transitioning out of state systems of care were able to co-design solutions to problems they’ve faced.
