Family’s Health and Mental Health Services include a component which works with youth age 0-21 who are at risk of placement or hospitalization and supports the youth and family by monitoring stability, linking the family to community resources and providing advocacy to access needed services. The Family Support Program, Transitions, and GAP (Getting Ahead Program) initiatives are included in this component.

The Gap Program was designed to help people ages 13-21 with mental health issues. A care coordinator works with youth to link them to services, community support, recreational activities, and mental health treatment. When possible the care coordinator works with the youth to rebuild their relationships with whatever family supports they may have. The youth receive life skills education and develop work readiness skills.

The Transitions program serves young people ages 18-25 with mental health issues and/or substance abuse issues in Ulster County. The Transitions Care Coordinator will work with you to avert unnecessary hospitalizations and promote appropriate usage of community recourses and healthcare. We can help you get linked to needed community services, mental health services, educational services, vocational services, housing and social groups.

In order to receive any of the above services, you must first fill out a SPOA application.
