Transition Age Youth Intensive Services (TAYIS)

Transition Age Youth Intensive Services (TAYIS) is a program designed for older adolescents and young adults who are moving out of the children’s mental health system and into adult mental health services. This program focuses on individuals with complex needs who may be transitioning out of the state hospital, residential treatment, juvenile correction facilities, intensive outpatient programs or local hospitals. The goal of the program is to assist individuals in becoming as independent as possible while reaching developmental milestones such as independent housing, education, employment and development of social relationships. This program follows an intensive case management model with a variety of team members who can provide specialized services. Services may be provided both in the community and at the office.
