Managing transitions

Young adults face a number of stressful transitions that can prove a trigger point for their mental health, including the transition from school to work or university, leaving the family home, or managing relationships. This chapter looks at positive ways to improve transitional mental-health services for young people aged between 16 and 24, while acknowledging the financial constraints on the sector as a whole. By listening to young people and encouraging a person-centred approach, services can be developed to ensure useful and effective provision. The joint working agenda needs to be applied to this situation to encourage greater collaboration between children's and adults' mental-health services. Many young people arrive in mental-health services with a complex range of other issues. A holistic approach that looks at wider problems may help them to engage with a range of services and ease their transition out of child and adolescent mental-health services.
