Transition to Independence Program (TIP)

Transition to Independence Program (TIP) is a community-based program to support teenagers and young adults transitioning into adulthood while managing the additional complexities of mental illness. This intensive program helps bridge the gap between the youth and adult mental health systems.

Utilizing a best practice model or the TIP Process Model emphasizes supporting the completion of high school/vocational programming, seeking and retaining employment, and establishing self-sufficiency.

Community support services help young adults make informed choices about life opportunities and services, ensuring timely access to needed assistance, providing opportunities for self-help activities, and coordinating all services to meet their individual goals.

TIP is available to youth ages 14-24 (dependent on county).
Butler County: Ages 14-24
Hamilton County: Ages 14-22
Other Counties: Clermont County, Montgomery County, Preble County, and other surrounding counties in the Cincinnati and Dayton areas.

Psychiatric Medication Management and Individual Counseling services are available to youth as needed.
