Lebanon's Warrior Project operated by PA Counseling Services
The Warrior Project (W
esilience) is a program through Pennsylvania Counseling Services
designed to assist transition-age youth (16-21 years old) with an open mental health case with Lebanon County MH/ID/EI to gain skills
to become independent, self-sufficient members of the community. A person-centered planning process is used to assist participants
to develop clear goals for their future, strengthen relationships with their supports, and connect with community resources to help
support their goals towards independence. Weekly groups are also offered to assist with skills such as money management, independent
living skills, employment, housing, transportation, and many more. For more information, please contact the Transition Coordinator
at the Warrior Project at: www.pacounseling.com
Lancaster's Transitional Support for Adolescent Program operated by Community Services Group
The Specialized Transitional Supports for Adolescents (STSA) Program is a transitional initiative operated by Community Services Group.
The program services adolescents and young adults ages 16-24 who reside in Lancaster County and are currently open with the BSU due to
a serious mental illness. Mature milestones of completing school, obtaining and maintaining a consistent job that provides enough money
to live independently, using public transportation, making and keeping friends and permanently moving out of the family home can be a
formidable journey. STSA focuses to provide education, linking, oversight, and navigation of community resources/services not readily
available but may effectively provide symptom management and maximize potential in a way that is most natural for the individual.
Consistent with the principles of recovery, the individual should have the expectation that the service provision will improve their
level of functioning or prevent further deterioration which could lead to more restrictive psychiatric services. Each individual completes
a Functional Assessment that serves as the foundation for the development of a Person Centered Plan with those they find supportive in their
lives. The plan is developed around the individual’s strengths, goals and abilities. The individual may participate by attending groups
and/or individual sessions with the transitional age service coordinator or peer mentor in order to concentrate on the objectives needed to
reach their goals. For further information please contact the Transition Coordinator at: www.csgonline.org/services/child-youth
