Transition to Adulthood Plan (TAP)

Visioning and Planning a Road Map for Your Future

A Transition to Adulthood Plan (TAP) is a document developed with an emerging adult (ages 14-26), family/caregivers, and Fraser mental health professionals to map out a vision and goals to achieve your best future.

Fraser mental health professionals meet with individuals over 2-3 therapy sessions to discuss strengths and needs in the following areas:
  • Mental Health
  • Social well-being
  • Physical health
  • Education
  • Employment
  • Financial and legal
  • Housing and living environments
  • Independent living skills

Following your last session, your clinician will share resources and recommendations based on your goals. Afterward, you and your primary provider will receive an email with your TAP Dashboard and individualized resources and links.

Once your TAP is complete, an OnTRAC care advocate is available to answer questions and provide follow-up support, for up to six months. Care Advocacy support is also available via email, phone, or Zoom sessions. Additionally, OnTRAC pathways are offered on an ongoing schedule to support your individualized needs and interests.

LGBTQIA Mental Health

Fraser Mental Health has both therapists who identify as LGBTQIA and those who accept and affirm the identity of those within the LGBTQIA community. We understand having a therapist who understands you or your child’s unique concerns is important. Fraser also offers therapy groups for young people with autism who are exploring their gender or sexual orientation. Our therapists meet individuals where they are — whether they’re struggling to come out, need help with bullying, or simply want someone to listen. When you call to set up an appointment, you can ask about being paired with an affirming therapist.

Fraser Family Consults

Fraser Family Consults offer immediate help for resolving your child or teen’s most challenging behavior issue. We can help you address feeding issues, sleeping problems, social concerns, speech concerns, clinginess, hypersensitivity, late milestones, inflexibility, aggression, and more.

You don’t need a formal diagnosis or evaluation to schedule a Fraser Family Consult. You will meet with a therapist to discuss your concerns and get tools to support your child’s behavior, growth, and development.

Your appointment may also include consultations from specialty staff or recommendations for an evaluation or treatment. Following your consultation, a Fraser therapist will create a support plan, individualized for your child and family’s needs. We may also provide you with recommendations for community supports and contacts.
