Young Adults in Transition Program

Greenville Mental Health Center

Greenville, South Carolina


Geographical area

GEOGRAPHICAL AREA

We serve Greenville County clients

in the Greenville Mental Health Center catchment area.


Number of clients served annually

NUMBER OF CLIENTS SERVED ANNUALLY

  • Greenville Mental Health Center annually serves approximately 6900 clients (based on most recent statistics available – 2009) with a yearly total of 87,843 clinical contacts.

  • Approximately 2,767 clients in 2009 were new admissions.

Mission statement

MISSION STATEMENT

  • The mission of the Greenville Mental Health Center is to improve the lives of the mentally ill and their families by the provision of mental health care in our community.


Program description

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

  • This program provides non-traditional services to young adults who do not fit into current programs at the Greenville Mental Health Center and often "slip through the cracks."  

  • The purpose of the Young Adults in Transition program is to help clients age 18 to 26 to transition successfully into adulthood and into the community.  


Program description1

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

  • Therapeutic interventions are center-based and community-based. Services are provided at the Greenville Mental Health Center, clients' homes, and in community settings.  

  • Groups are designed to enhance clients' self esteem, to improve quality of life, and to help clients to develop social and leisure skills.


Population served

POPULATION SERVED

  • Males and females between the ages of 18 and 26 years who have been diagnosed with at least one Axis I mental health diagnosis.

  • This demographic has outgrown the Child and Adolescent (CAF) programs and needs more intense services than the Adult Acute Care program. Also, the program provides a more complex level of client services than the adult Community Rehabilitation Service Program (CRS) program.

  • This client-demographic often “falls through the cracks.”


Description of collaboration

DESCRIPTION of COLLABORATION

  • Several programs within the Greenville Mental Health Center (GMHC) refer clients to the Young Adult in Transition Program.

  • In-center programs that refer to the Young Adult in Transition Program include the Child and Adolescent Program, the Acute (Adult) Care Program, and the CRS Program.
