Transition to Independence Process

In Michigan, we believe that social and emotional health matters!

Transitioning into adulthood represents a particularly challenging period for youth and young adults who struggle with mental health concerns.

Transition to Independence Process Details

The Transition to Independence Process (TIP) Model prepares and supports transition age youth and young adults (TAYYA) with:

  • educational and employment opportunities.
  • safe living situations.
  • their personal effectiveness and wellbeing.
  • their community-life functioning.

The TIP Model is an evidence-supported practice that is being implemented in select sites within the State of Michigan. Through a multidisciplinary approach, the TIP Model can assist TAYYA in navigating the unique challenges that they face during their launch into adulthood roles and functioning.
