Transition Age Youth Field Capable Clinical Services (TAY FCCS)

The Transition Age Youth Field Capable Clinical Services Program (TAY FCCS) meets the needs of 90 youth ages 16-25. The mission of the program reflects the psychosocial rehabilitation model, where evidence-based practices and principles related to wellness and recovery are utilized. The program facilitates a seamless transition for the TAY FSP enrollee, who needs a less intensive level of care as they meet their recovery goals.

Alternatively, TAY FCCS services may circumvent the need for an intensive level of care (e.g., IMD). The population served includes: those who have a mental illness; are unserved; are inappropriately served; are underserved; have a co-occurring disorder; homeless or at risk of being homeless; aging out of the child welfare/juvenile justice systems and the children's system of care; exiting long-term institutional care; and /or experiencing their first psychotic break. Mental health stability, increased autonomy, and the development of age-appropriate skills is promoted and supported by a multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary treatment team with a 1: 20-25 staff to client ratio. Services include: Mental Health Services (e.g., individual, group, and family therapy) with an intensive focus on rehabilitation, Targeted Case Management Services, Crisis Intervention Services (including 24/7telephone response) and Medication Support Services.

Funding for this program is provided through the Mental Health Services Act.

Target Population: 

Transition Age Youth who have severe emotional disturbances, or severe mental illness, that result in significant impairment in social, emotional, educational and/or occupational areas, and/or those who may have a co-occurring disorder and/or have experienced severe trauma.

The population may be isolated and/or homebound with limited or no social support system, homeless or at risk of homelessness, and have a history of or at risk of neglect or abuse. The TAY FCCS program serves those who are unserved, underserved, or inappropriately served. They may also be aging out of the child welfare/juvenile justice systems and the children’s system of care; exiting long-term institutional care; and/or experiencing their first psychotic break.

They may also be transitioning from one level of care to another, for example the Full Service Partnership program to outpatient; released from jail or with history of being incarcerated or who at risk of incarceration; have a history or multiple psychiatric hospitalizations in the recent past.

Given the current demographics of the Center's service area, special attention and consideration is paid to both engaging and outreaching the Latino, Russian, and Armenian TAY in our community.
