While there is a lack of evidence-based practices specifically designed to improve outcomes for emerging adults (ages ~16-30) with serious mental health conditions, this does not mean that there is a lack of useful evidence to inform practice. This webinar presents an evidence-informed practice model that describes a positive developmental approach to working with this population. The model is built around a framework of shared practice elements that appear across programs and interventions that have demonstrated success in working with young people with SMHCs. The webinar outlines the evidence that underlies the model, describes the model, and shows how practice consistent with the model is responsive to the unique developmental tasks of emerging adulthood.
