Bridging service gaps: System integration strategies for service providers working with young adults with mental health issues
August 14, 2014
This webinar addresses strategies for meeting the cross-system needs of young people with mental health conditions in the transition years. Presenters will begin with a brief review of the challenges resulting from service fragmentation and varied eligibility criteria. Then they will share innovative collaborative and service integration strategies developed by staff at the Early Assessment and Support Alliance, a statewide initiative in Oregon with the EASA Center for Excellence (technical assistance) located in Portland and Thresholds Youth Programs in Chicago. The webinar will also feature a young adult perspective on involvement in services and will conclude with recommendations for bridging service gaps.
