Young Adult Behavioral Health Program at Rhode Island Hospital
Behavioral Health Services for Young Adults
The Young Adult Behavioral Health Program at Rhode Island Hospital helps 18- to 26-year-olds struggling with psychiatric illness live more productive lives by providing affordable and comprehensive mental health treatment.
Our program seeks to improve accessibility to mental health services for young adults in Rhode Island, with a special emphasis on partnering with university- and college-based counseling centers in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
Young adults with psychiatric illness face several challenges, including navigating multiple programs and delivery systems.
Existing mental health services are not necessarily tailored to a particular mental disability or age range, which may discourage young adults from receiving the care they need.
