This NPI program serves 14 young adults between the ages of 18 and 23. As consumers of mental health services, they need help transitioning into the adult mental health system and building independent living skills. Customers receive case management services and are strongly encouraged to stay in school. They also focus on the following areas:
- Self esteem/relationships
- Job training
- Mental wellness
- Coping with stress
All of these customers live with serious and persistent mental illness, and all have incomes below the federal poverty line. Almost one-third have dual diagnoses (mental health and substance use issues).
This program is funded in part by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development.
