Patients as parents and young people approaching adulthood: how should we manage the interface between mental health services for young people and adults?



Patients as parents and young people approaching adulthood: how should we manage the interface between mental health services for young people and adults?



Current Opinion in Psychiatry 18(4): 449-454



The present review discusses critically recent research findings (published during the period 2003-2004) on the mental health needs of young people in transition (old adolescents and young adults), including those of young parents. Also, the evidence on effective interventions and service models is considered. Emerging evidence indicates that young people have high rates of mental health needs (in addition to high prevalence of psychiatric disorders) that may be related to life transitions. These needs often fall between the remit of adolescent/adult and mental health/social care services, and therefore are not adequately met. With the exception of mental health interventions for early psychosis and psychosocial programmes for teenage parents, there is very limited knowledge on how best to meet the mental health needs of young people in transition. It is widely recognized that young people in transition require services and interventions tailored to their characteristics, rather than a mere extension to either child/adolescent or adult services. Recent policies and research findings have led to the development of early psychosis interventions, with initial encouraging messages. Similar initiatives are required for young people with nonpsychotic disorders.
