Healthy Transitions grantees implement a range of different service delivery models to treat and support young adults of transition age. These models range from more traditional youth-serving models to newer models that have blended best practice approaches for working with young adults. In this grantee-led webinar, presenters highlight their experiences implementing their selected service models and discuss key considerations for Healthy Transitions grantees.
Peer-to-peer helping is based on the premise that when young people have problems, they often turn to friends for help. This model is effective at improving school climate, linking students to formal and informal supports, and reducing youth violence, including bullying and suicide. The session outlines the essential elements of a successful program, and includes a grantee-led overview of the Natural Helpers program in Fairbanks Native Association, a Healthy Transitions grantee.
