Martin Rafferty is a CEO, international speaker, and youth engagement strategist. He has been called a next-generation advocate by Huffington Post author and President of the Children’s Mental Health Network, Scott Comstock. His life story was celebrated by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which highlighted Rafferty as one of eight global changemakers. Perhaps one of his most successful achievements includes the creation of a peer-to-peer course provided to high schoolers from four different countries as a joint research project with the University of Oxford.
Martin is the founder and CEO of Youth Era, an international and highly celebrated nonprofit that is revolutionizing current thinking about how we view youth engagement. For more than a decade, Youth Era has served hundreds of thousands of young people through their drop-in centers, online peer-to-peer support services, and postvention for crises, including responding to school shootings.

We are looking to gather questions in advance! We’d especially like to hear from college students who identify as having mental health lived experience. To submit questions, email: email@example.com
Youth Era creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When Youth Era opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With Youth Era services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
