Supporting Youth to Adult Health Care Transition

Youth & Young Adults

[copied from Got Transition, need to put in our own words]

During childhood, your parents and caregivers usually help with your health and health care needs—they call for appointments, fill out forms, and keep track of medications. As you get older, managing those needs becomes your own responsibility. Achieving this independence requires an organized transition process to gain independent health care skills, prepare for an adult model of care, and transfer to new clinicians.

See below for tools, resources, and trainings to help guide your transition to adult-centered health care.
