Young Adult Volunteer Group

Welcome! On behalf of the Utah Center for Evidence Based Treatment (UCEBT), we are excited that you're interested in joining this volunteer community action group.

Are you a young adult (high school or college undergrad) who is interested in mental health and maybe making it into a career? Are you ready to get into the community and help promote mental health and social justice? If so, working with UCEBT's young adult community action group might be a great fit! 

Our psychologists will be meeting 2-4 times each month with young adult volunteers in the community to:

  • Discuss mental health issues facing young adults today
  • Brainstorm ways to address the most pressing issues
  • Plan outreach activities that support mental health and social justice in the community
  • Go out into the community and make a difference!

In addition to attending meetings, here are some things you might be doing:

  • Giving a presentation at a local high school about mental health
  • Joining our staff members to testify at legislative committee hearings
  • Staffing booths at events, distributing info to educate people on mental health
