New AACAP Resource Center

Violence - Hands

Check out AACAP's Moving Into Adulthood Resource Center!

Young people moving from adolescence into young adulthood are defined as transitional age youth. Making this transition with mental health issues can, for some, be very difficult and may lead to an existing problem getting worse or triggering new problems. The need for support and treatment can be very important, but other factors, such as misinformation about mental illness, not knowing where to go, and finding health insurance can make it difficult for people to get help.

With the right information, support, and treatment, transitional age youth with mental illnesses can succeed at becoming healthy, productive, successful, and independent adults.

KUDOS! to both the Transitional Age Youth & Consumer Issues Committees for their efforts in creating this valuable resource!
