READY4LIFE is a pilot project, funded by the United Ways of Oakville and Hamilton/Burlington to support youth at risk in these communities. Four key objectives:
- Agency outreach - initiate connections between youth and adult services to assist with service response and enhance planning activities in the transition of youth from youth to adult mental health services.
- Youth outreach – seek out and identify youth at risk via traditional and non- traditional approaches.
- Early intervention – for those youth who are not ready to transition to the adult system, initial intervention will be provided to reconnect them to youth services, education and their families.
- Intervention support – for those youth who are at risk and wish to transition to the adult system, a Youth Outreach Coordinator will provide case management support to assist with a successful transition and integrate them into the community.
