Presentation Type: paper presentation

Synopsis: To inform the expansion of a system of care in Allegheny County, PA to serve transition age youth, 12 focus groups (six with males; six with females) were conducted with youth aged 18 to 24. Data gathered from these groups provided youth insights on their goals and future, stressors they encounter in their daily lives, who they define as their families, the role of trust in the service process, and what their ideal system of care would look like. In this presentation, results will be shared and a discussion of how results were used for system change will occur.
