OCP2/Transition Age Youth

One Community Partnership 2 (OCP2) is a grant and county initiative to enhance the delivery of services to transition-age youth and emerging adults (14-21 years of age) who experience emotional/mental health challenges that also may include substance use, trauma, and other complex issues. This initiative provides the Broward System of Care with effective, developmentally appropriate supports to assist all young people in their transition to adulthood, and their pathway of recovery, resiliency and wellness. This initiative began October 2014 with a Planning grant and continues through September 2019 through an Expansion and Sustainability grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

Services for young people transitioning to adulthood in Broward have been enhanced through the implementation of the evidence-supported practice called the Transition to Independence Process (TIP) model. OCP2 focuses on high fidelity implementation, infusion of peer and recovery support principles across the system of care, wellness activities, and training opportunities provided through community partnerships. Furthermore, OCP2 has incorporated independent living supports that include evidenced-based practices such as the Individual Placement and Support (IPS) mode for supported employment and education, and supportive housing. Through this menu of services, young people have been able to access individualized supports to achieve their “real world” future plans which include goals like obtaining friendships, employment, independent living in apartments, and education.
