Aurora Youth Options a program of Aurora Mental Health Center works with Middle and High School aged youth and their families to navigate connect and provide positive individualized resources to help youth thrive. The AYO mentoring program is designed as a close augmentation to the AYO program model. Youth in AYO who are at risk of truancy and school avoidance have access to comprehensive services. Along with community based one to one mentoring with a community volunteer, youth also engage in life skill learning and activities and community service opportunities.

I assist clients either just entering the health care system for the first time or those that have been working with the illness (s) and would like a another set of eyes and ears to advocate for them in their journey. Many of my clients have no other support people close or just want to confirm what they are hearing and experiencing and want to have it explained beyond their level of understanding. I go medical appointments, hospital admissions, ER visits, Lab, therapy sessions, etc.
During a diagnosis the most important information is what comes after the words, "you have ......." . However, we find in our profession this is when we should be listening and asking the most questions and clarifying everything said. However, this is also the time we tend to shut down and don't hear anything else. A good advocate takes notes, asks the right questions, discusses long term plans, and follows up on next steps to ensure our clients get the best medical care they deserve. We simply advocate for our clients like they would want to be advocated for, but can't.
