November 09, 2010 - Fred Finch Youth Center’s Transitions Program provides mobile mental health services for youth and young adults, ages 15.5-21. The Transitions Program provides individualized mental health services and clinical case management to youth transitioning into adulthood. The services can begin prior to the youth leaving foster, residential, or family care and can continue until age 21. Young adults can also enroll in Transitions after emancipation to help with potential challenges such as homelessness or pursuing educational goals. We recommend you consider Transitions services for any youth whose mental health symptoms (anxiety, stress, depression, mood swings, trauma-related symptoms, interpersonal/familial conflicts, or voices/delusions) interfere with their ability to identify or pursue their goals for themselves.
The program assists youth to resolve or cope with their symptoms, as well as to create a long-term support system to make progress toward meeting their personal goals. Participants must be residents of Alameda County and have full-scope Medi-Cal. One unique feature about Transitions is that counselors meet participants in the field to provide counseling utilizing a strength-based, client-driven modality. If participants prefer meeting at an office, we have one office at ILSP and another at the FFYC campus in Oakland.
