Come out and see poetry, music, dancing and more from young people in the Tampa Bay community who are apart of the Florida Healthy Transitions' Bent Not Broken youth development program. For 6 weeks I have worked with some young people on using their voice and experiences to craft poems and personal pieces of writing. This is the showcase for those pieces.
Florida Healthy Transitions is a new program funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). This program aims to improve access to treatment and support services for youth and young adults ages 16 – 25 who are living with, or maybe experiencing symptoms, or are at risk of developing a serious mental health condition. The program also aims to reduce stigma related to mental health, and focuses on empowering young people to be their best. The primary goal of the program is to assist youth in transitioning successfully into adulthood, and to assist young adults in achieving their life goals.
