Transition to Independence Program

The Transition to Independence Program (TIP) provides community-based care coordination and support for mental health recovery for young adults, ages 18-30 years old. TIP is designed to be a transitional program, meaning that some participants work with TIP for longer periods of time, while others meet their recovery goals in less time. TIP services provide an “at your service approach” to care coordination, goal setting, and social support.

TIP support participants with their goals for:

  • Finding a therapist
  • Help with arranging, monitoring, and directly assisting with psychiatric services and medication management
  • Crisis and safety planning and support
  • Finding and keeping an apartment or living arrangement
  • Help with figuring out what benefits you may be eligible for and how to access those benefits
  • Finding and keeping a job
  • Drug and alcohol services
  • Finding a doctor or physician to meet your physical needs
