The ACT TAY program is designed specifically to meet the behavioral health needs of Transitional Age Youth. This age group (ages 16-24) is typically experiencing a period of time when their personal development and life decisions are at the forefront. As emerging adults, they are faced with employment and education decisions, as well potentially living on their own and having to direct their own financial and healthcare needs. We understand that behavioral health issues can make this transition even harder to navigate.

Burrells ACT-TAY team is comprised of a group of trained specialists committed to assisting this unique group of young people, providing them support in every aspect of their lives so that they can be successful adults.
