Secondary and post-secondary education and employment are compromised for older youth and emerging adults (YEA) with serious mental health conditions. The aim of this research was to identify state-of-the art and innovative practices in career development for YEA. Researchers conducted in-depth telephone interviews with deliverers of 28 innovative programs across the country. Transcripts of interviews were systematically coded and analyzed. Results cover innovative practices for YEA engagement and retention and key service design characteristics.
