The overall goals of the SAMHSA grant-funded Healthy Transitions program are to improve access to treatment and support services for youth and young adults, ages 16-25, who have, or are at risk of developing, a serious emotional disturbance (SED) or a serious mental illness (SMI). Healthy Transitions works to improve their emotional and behavioral functioning so these young people can maximize their potential to assume adult roles and responsibilities and lead full and productive lives. Healthy Transitions will accomplish the above by working with the North Carolina Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services Healthy Transitions to implement a coordinated system of outreach, assessment, and care coordination integrating youth peer partners to improve access to treatment and support services by increasing awareness, screening and detection, outreach and engagement, referrals to treatment, coordination of care and evidence-informed treatment for this age group.
Thank you for existing. You helped me make a hard transformation during a very stressful period of my life. I don’t know where I would be without this service program. It made me feel welcome, safe, and secure.
Dr. John Carter has been seeing my boys since small children. I love how he includes the parent in last half of sessions, and explains everything as clearly as he can, and stays on top of medication,and side effects.
I contacted family preservation services at an extremely difficult time for my family and I. They have been amazing, from the variety of therapists and flexible hours. Just the overall care and concern has been just what we have needed. The search for therapists is very difficult but I'm so blessed we have found them.
My brother has been a patient here for years now and they have been there for my family in more ways than not. They are great here at this clinic and my family and I are very grateful to the entire staff!
