    FAM (Family Advocacy Meeting)

    12:00 PM-1:00 PM
    September 28, 2023

    Families interested in learning more about the YES system of care and ways to become involved are welcome to join this public meeting on the 4th Thursday of each month.

    Each month we will hear from a program, resource partner, agency, or service of the YES system of care to learn more about how they impact YOU – our Youth and Families using YES- and how they can help you carry the load of dealing with Serious Emotional Disturbance (SED) or mental health issues for yourself or a family member. State H&W Reps for the YES system also attend FAM.

    If you would like an email invite, please contact Wendy Margolis at or FYIdaho at
