Youth Transitional Services
Assisting Youths in the Transition to Adulthood
Youth transitional services are specialized services for youth and young adults with emotional and/or behavioral difficulties transitioning to adulthood. The services help young adults and their families move toward greater self-sufficiency and access the needed services and support that may include:
- Behavioral health services
- Vocational and employment services
- Housing services and supportive housing
- Educational supports
- Community life-functioning supports
- Benefits consultation including how to sign up for Medicaid
A team of case managers, counselors, a child psychiatrist and vocational rehabilitation providers are specialized in providing services to transitional age youth.
Transition to Independence Process
The team utilizes the Transition to Independence Process (TIP) to help youth and their families improve their lives during this transition and beyond. The participants experience dramatic changes in all areas of development during this transition to adulthood and TIP helps with decisions and choices related to employment, education, living situation and community-life functioning. Youth learn to identify strengths and needs, do future planning, increase problem-solving skills and learn strategies to prevent high-risk behaviors.
