ISK’s Healthy Transitions Program works with youth and young adults ages 16-25, with either a Serious Emotional Disturbance (SED) or a Serious Mental Illness (SMI).
Transitioning into adulthood represents a particularly challenging period for youth and young adults. The Transition Program prepares and supports youth and young adults with:
- Moving into employment
- Educational opportunities
- Living situations
- Personal effectiveness/well-being
- Community-life functioning
Transition Peer Support Specialists work to connect with the youth through shared lived experiences, empower youth to be independent, and support youth voice and choice in their own treatment. They assist youth with overcoming transition barriers and challenges and translating them into skills.
