Resources for Transition Age Youth And Young Adults (Ages 16-22)

Transition Age Youth and Young Adult (TAYA) Services

Services for Transition Age Youth and Young Adults (TAYA) bridge the Child, Youth and Family & Adult Mental Health Services Divisions. The Department strives to match youth and young adults with the services and supports that best meet their clinical and developmental needs. Additionally, DMH offers specific services and supports that are designed to meet the unique needs of youth and young adults ages 16-22.

The goal is for TAYA to embark on a positive life path into adulthood – toward the goals of personal stability, community housing, employment, education and positive family/social relationships.
