If you feel worried about going to a meeting, here are some reasons why it’s good to go:

  • You know yourself better than anyone else does.
  • Adults must listen to what you think is right for you.
  • Getting involved can make you feel more in control of your life and might help things work out better for you.
  • If you don’t understand what other people are talking about, you can ask them to explain.
  • You have the right to take someone along with you to the meeting – like a friend, a family member, an advocacy worker, or someone else who supports you.
