Parents of Transitional Aged Youth

Parents of Transitional Aged Youth (PTAY) is a program designed to help families guide their young adults with behavioral, emotional, or mental health needs during the transition to adulthood.

Our staff includes an experienced transition specialist with lived-experience.

  • Parent Support groups
  • One-on-one support
