The OnTrackNY Youth and Young Adult Leadership Council centers and elevates the voices and perspectives of youth and young adults who are either participants or graduates of OnTrackNY programs across New York State. Council members convene to represent and express what matters most to them in the design, delivery, and evaluation of OnTrackNY services, as well as supporting youth guided practices and principles in overall mental health systems transformation.

OnTrackNY strives to be a youth driven coordinated specialty care model, personalized to the needs of each participant. A diverse group of youth and young adults use their personal expertise and experiences to help OnTrackNY and the broader system improve. Participants and graduates collaborate with one another to provide advice, guidance, and input to OnTrackNY on engaging youth and young adults. This includes, but is not limited to, providing feedback on components and care processes of the OnTrackNY recovery model, training materials, and social media campaigns.
