This session will present research on topics related to the needs of youth in transition and youth with special mental healthcare needs. The presentations cover various aspects of providing healthcare support, from evaluating transition programs, predicting risk factors for mental health problems, and exploring the influence of relationships on mental health to proposing a trauma-informed model of treatment. These efforts all aim to maximize lifelong functioning, development, and health of youth by informing healthcare providers, parents, and the youth themselves.
