January Program Spotlight: Healthy Transitions

This month we spotlight Humanim’s Healthy Transitions program!

SPOTLIGHT FB5 YouthServices10 600x450

HT is a youth-driven, strengths-based, and non-stigmatizing program that empowers young people who are struggling with mental illness to manage their mental health symptoms effectively and successfully transition into adulthood. In partnership with the state of Maryland, we employ developmentally appropriate, evidence-based practices to assist youth in effectively managing their mental health symptoms, while obtaining employment, enrolling into college or trade schools, strengthening their social supports, and transitioning into housing and residential services.

By providing individualized services that are unique to the needs of young adults with mental illness, youth are able to become more independent and self-sufficient, and be successful adults in the community.

Evidence Based Practices:

  • Supported Employment
  • Supported Education
  • Family Psychoeducation

Support around areas of need, such as:

  • Independent Living Skills
  • Crisis Management and Support
  • Case Management
  • Financial Literacy and Management
  • Entitlements Counseling
  • Housing and Residential Services
  • Health Homes Care Coordination
  • Community and Peer Engagement
  • Physical, Emotional and Social Wellness Education
