Developed in 2011, the TAY Program at PEERS is a wellness hub where young adults (ages 16-24) can gain life skills and engage in a peer community.
Our program is centered on the 5 Pillars of Care developed by ACBH Child and Young Adult System of Care, which are: mental and physical wellness, housing, educational/vocational goals, employment, and community connections. We provide education and resources to support TAY’s successful transition into adulthood and our programs are free, youth-friendly, and peer-lead.
On-site, we offer TAY Leadership Club (TLC), a bi-monthly peer support group includes TAY friendly workshops on the 5 Pillars of Care. Program members are a part of a peer community and receive a stipend for participation. Meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday from 3:30-6pm. Meals are provided! If you are interested in joining TLC, contact Bianca Brown @ email@example.com or 510-832-7337.
Out in the community, PEERS TAY Staff provides empowering Wellness Workshops, which are empowering educational presentations centered on mental health and wellness at TAY serving organizations, schools, and programs. We provide all the materials and even snacks! If you would like to host a Wellness Workshop at your facility, contact Reinali Gilder @ firstname.lastname@example.org or 510-832-7337.
