Myriad federal programs can address the wide range of needs of youth with serious mental health conditions who are transitioning into adulthood. In this November 2008 update, the Bazelon Center identifies 56 programs, run by 20 or more different agencies in nine departments of the federal government. Moving On is a collection of fact sheets on these programs. Each offers information about the program's purpose, services and funded activities, the administering federal agency, grantee and beneficiary eligibility, and a brief assessment of the program's impact.
