Webinar Description:

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” This webinar will highlight two community programs that are addressing mental health issues through collaborations and unique partnerships. Registrants will hear about Somerville, MA's Teen Empowerment Youth Mental Wellness Ambassador program and the Behavioral Health Consortium in El Paso, Texas. 


Youth Mental Wellness Ambassadors Program- Somerville, MA

In 2003, responding to increasing drug use, the rise of gangs, and an alarming rate of suicide among adolescents, Somerville’s newly-elected mayor, Joseph Curtatone, commissioned Teen Empowerment to assess the situation and then asked TE to bring programs to help address the needs. One of their signature programs is The Youth Mental Wellness Ambassadors Program, which offers teen-led workshops and events that teach coping skills and destigmatizes mental health. 


El Paso Behavioral Health Consortium- El Paso, TX

The Consortium is committed to ongoing collaboration where all partners are welcome, empowered, and unified to achieve the ideal behavioral health service and support system and to reduce the burden of mental illness by designing improved, efficient, patient centered care for El Paso County residents.




Danny McLaughlin, Program Director at The Center for Teen Empowerment

Danny first became involved with Teen Empowerment as a youth, giving a speech at TE’s first large event in Somerville. He became a Program Coordinator in 2005. Now serving as Program Director, Danny has been in the field for 13 years in which he has gained expertise in youth-police relationships including leading youth-police walking dialogues, community engagement meetings, basketball and soccer tournaments and training of Somerville rookie police officers. Danny is also an active volunteer for various Somerville causes, including the Somerville Boxing Club.



Enrique Mata El Paso, Senior Program Officer at Paso Del Norte Health Foundation

Enrique joined the Health Foundation in 2001, leading the Mental Health and Emotional Well-Being Priority Area. His experience includes more than 20 years in health philanthropy including designing, implementing, and evaluating multi-million dollar Collective Impact initiatives. Enrique also maintains skill sets in clinical nursing practice, healthcare revenue cycle management, and commercial property management. He thrives on leveraging resources and building collaboration to make lasting health improvements for the region.
