We’ve dedicated this month’s edition of Access to mental and behavioral health. Mental health is often overlooked in both the medical and disability worlds, and finding the right support is an essential part of a young adults’ overall wellbeing.
We've included a wide range of resources below, including two new ones from NYS Transition Partners. Also, be sure to check out our upcoming mental health-themed Learning Community on May 10.
For more information about your own or your young person’s mental health, please email us and we will be happy to help answer any questions you might have.
MAY 10: LEARNING COMMUNITY:
Mental Health and Transition Age Youth
Young people with disabilities face many challenges when they age out of the public education and youth service systems. There are fewer resources, less available support, and proper diagnosis and treatment become even more difficult for adults.
This webinar will explore the topic of mental health for transition-aged youth, share related resources, and provide next steps.
Bilingual “Creating a Life after High School” program
