YOUNG ADULT SERVICES
Young Adult Services give young people with psychiatric conditions the support they need to plan for their future and achieve their goals as productive and happy adults.
The transition of becoming an adult while living with a psychiatric condition has unique and specific challenges, as psychiatric conditions often emerge during the life phase that bridges adolescence and adulthood. This is why our TAY Services follow an innovative strength-based model designed to support youth who are struggling with the ability to regulate their emotions, have challenges with substance misuse, are homeless or at-risk of homelessness, or are experiencing their first episode with a psychiatric condition.
Youth Services are available to young adults, age 14-25, who are eligible to receive support from the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health. For more information, visit the How to Access Our Services page.
TRANSITION AGE YOUTH
Vinfen’s Transition Age Youth (TAY) program helps young people embark on a positive life path into adulthood and toward the goals of personal stability, secure housing, competitive employment, and positive family and social relationships.
TRANSITION TO INDEPENDENCE
Services are available to young people and their families through Vinfen’s Transition to Independence Programs (TIP) in the greater Northeast area of Massachusetts – with offices in Lawrence and Peabody. TIP facilitators work with whomever each youth chooses to be a part of their support team.
We collaborate with Massachusetts Mental Health Center to serve clients at THE SPOT in Boston, a multi-service center for young adults with psychiatric conditions.
