Early Onset Program for Transitional Age Youth

The late teen and early adulthood years are frequently when symptoms of severe mental illness first manifest, but far too often, it isn’t until much later that people start receiving treatment. 

The Early Onset Program is dedicated to making sure that eligible 16- to 21-year-old Transitional Age Youth (TAY) get treatment sooner rather than later.

Through Early Onset, which is funded by the Mental Health Services Act, Clinicians work with TAY who have had early signs of psychosis, but still have awareness and insight into the symptoms. In addition to counseling and peer-led support groups, clients also develop recovery action plans that help them identify triggers and ways to make themselves feel better.
