Transition-age youth in the mental health system was defined as
those youth between the ages of 14-25 who had been in the
children’s mental health system and may be transitioned or
moved out of the Children’s System of Care into the Adult
System of Care, or who may not have be eligible for any public
services as they reach adulthood.
The WMHPC completed the research on the evidence-based mental
health practices for transition age young women. This
report brought a significant contribution to the field of
gender sensitive mental health services and discussed the
mental health practices, supported by scientific evidence,
which improved the outcomes for transition age women served by
the mental health service system.
