♦ Young Adult in Transition
Name: Young Adults in Transition
The Young Adult in Transition grant is funded by Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) for six years to develop systems of care for young adults who are between 16 and 21 years old. Currently, we see a huge decline in the use of mental health services among young adults who reach the age 16. We are exploring ways to increase access and use of mental health services for this age group of Vermont citizens. Please visit the Young Adult in Transition page for more information about this project.
