The goal of our Transitional Youth Program is to assist youth in regaining and maintaining age-appropriate milestones and minimize the disruption that mental illness can have on their lives.
The Transitional Youth Program (TYP)
assists youth who have been diagnosed with schizophrenia or a mood disorder and are beginning to address the symptoms of the illness and its impact on their lives. It is an intensive clinical support program which provides services in our office and in the community, offering both therapeutic and case management interventions. The goal of the program is to assist the youth to regain and maintain age-appropriate milestones and minimize the disruption that mental illness can have on their lives.

The key focuses of the program are education, employment and socialization with peers.
