Mental Health Services and Resources After Aging-Out of Foster Care (for Lawyers)

One of the greatest challenges for youth aging-out of foster care is identifying appropriate resources for obtaining quality mental health services. This Fact Sheet and the pamphlet for clients “Mental Health Services: Resources After Aging-Out of Foster Care,” will serve as guides to help youth transitioning out of foster care, provide basic information about ways for youth to access mental health services (even for those without health insurance), and share tools for legal advocacy on the youth’s behalf prior to emancipation.
