SEEKING PARTICIPANTS FOR NATIONAL SURVEY:
How Families Support Young Adults during Transition
The “National Survey of Supports Family Members/ Adult Allies Provide to Young People during their Transition Years” will document the support family members, parents and friends provide for young people with behavioral health needs during the transition years (16 to 25 years old).
The information you provide will help youth- and family-run organizations, policy makers and service providers better understand and respond to the needs and preferences of young adults and their families.
We are seeking survey participants who are:
- 1) family members/other allies who provided support to young adults with behavioral health challenges during their transition years (16 to 25 years old);
- 2) young adults who are currently at least 18 years old who experienced behavioral health challenges during their transition years and receive or have received support from a family member or other ally.
If one of these categories describes you, we welcome you to participate by visiting the appropriate link below:
