Transition Age Youth Task Force

Transition Age Youth – young people, age 16-28,  who have had difficulties in life or who are transitioning out of a system of care – often don’t get the assistance they need to become healthy and independent adults.  These may be youth in foster care, those with mental health or substance use problems, those who are involved in the juvenile justice system, homeless youth, youth who have been incarcerated or have mentally ill parents, those in special education, or those who have dropped out of high school.



Programs and Services for Transition Age Youth

MHA-Hawai`i convened a task force to find out what resources exist for these young people, and identify gaps in services. A resource guide of programs and services was developed, and while it's not completely comprehensive, it may be useful.  It can be found by going to TAY Resource Map.
