Young people who are leaving the children's mental health or other child serving systems frequently are left with little to no supports as they navigate a new world of service delivery.  Providing peer supports for this population requires a generational lens as well as an understanding of the intersections that define systems of care.  This course is designed to support the transition from adolescence to adulthood through a deeper understanding of the interplay of individuals and the systems.
