Youth and young adults (YYA) of transition age (16-25 years of age) are an important population of focus for mental health services and supports. The resources provided in this document are intended to assist a wide array of stakeholders involved in creating better outcomes for YYA with mental health challenges and serious mental illness. These resources uphold the research-based concept that systems and services should be youth driven, developmentally and culturally appropriate, and trauma informed.
