This webinar describes the "Adapting Individual Placement Support (IPS) for Young Adults: The Thresholds study." The mission of the Transitions RTC is to improve the supports for youth and young adults, ages 14-30, with serious mental health conditions who are trying to successfully complete their schooling and training and move into rewarding work lives. The project with Thresholds tested a peer mentoring model for young people with serious mental health conditions who are working and going to school.
