Opportunity to participate and make a few bucks


Former desparate mom
The Partners in Planning Project at the Research and Training Center on
Family Support and Children's Mental Health at Portland State University
is seeking youth to participate in a survey about team-based planning
services. The goal of the research is to increase youth participation
in team-based planning. The survey asks questions about how youth have
been included or not included in team-based treatment planning. We value
what young people and adults have to tell us about youth participation
in planning.

We are looking for youth and their caretakers to fill out a survey who:

-have participated in team based planning (current or in the last 12
months) such as an Individualized Education Planning (IEP) team,
wraparound services, psychiatric hospital discharge team-based planning,
residential care or in-home team-based services, or other team-based
planning in the last 12 months to address youth's mental or emotional
health needs


-are between 14-21 years old

This research has been approved by the PSU Institutional Review Board.
$20 incentive to youth for completing 30 minute survey, and an
additional $10 to the participating caregiver who takes a survey. We are
not seeking caregivers to participate without their youth's
participation (must be a matched pair, or youth only, with caregiver
consent.) All participation is by telephone or mail. Parent/guardian
consent must be signed for youth aged 14-17. Please email
[email protected], or call toll free 1-877-890-7575 to take the survey by
phone or to have the survey mailed to you.
