Synopsis: Evidence regarding the characteristics of transition aged youth with psychiatric disorders who will be transitioning from residential treatment is a critical link in understanding the needs of this vulnerable population. We present information about a transition aged cohort in a state wide study of Therapeutic Foster Care. We report on the association between the characteristics of these at-risk youth and their patterns of mental health service use while in a residential treatment setting.
