catch-21: helping youth out

Our Catch-21 program works with adolescents facing significant mental health challenges. By focusing on the vulnerable period between leaving intensive mental health programs and returning to live in the community, Catch-21 helps youth ages 17-21 develop the skills they need to function successfully.

Catch-21 focuses on helping youth develop strategies to achieve their long-term goals, and the emotional and social tools needed to get there. Clinicians meet with youth where they are most comfortable—in coffee shops, at their residences or at WestCoast’s offices. They also facilitate connections with our community partners to find safe and stable housing, and access to resources such as health care, substance use treatment, employment and educational opportunities. Above all, Catch-21 helps participants weather the ups and downs of the transition from residential treatment to independence.
