The TAY (Transition Age Youth) Clinician provides therapeutic services, including counseling, case management, permanency planning, and crisis intervention, to youth and young adults ages 16-21. Clinicians are members of a wraparound team that is aimed at supporting youth who are referred through social service, probation or mental health departments. The primary goal of our program is to provide youth and families with services that will ensure safety, stability, and permanency. Clinicians provide services primarily in the community, including schools, family homes, group homes, etc.
San Francisco TAY Wraparound Services aim to address mental health symptoms that are impacting the youth’s ability to successfully transition into adulthood. In addition to symptom management and reduction, clinicians collaborate with youth to identify and work toward overall wellness goals, such as increasing independent skills, expanding their support network, accessing community resources, and pursuing employment and educational opportunities.
Services build on the values and strengths of each young adult and family, and are tailored to meet their unique and changing needs. As our approach to services is youth driven, each client identifies the focus of their treatment, as well as the people they want on their treatment team, which may include supportive family, friends, or community members.
