Recently Parent Network had the honor and privilege to host a Webinar for New York State Transition Partners on Transition Age Youth and Mental Health Resources. Our guest speaker was Karl Shallowhorn, Director of Community Advocacy for the Mental Health Association of Erie County and Compeer Buffalo. He is a New York State Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor and Certified Peer Specialist. Karl has worked in both the addictions and mental health fields.
The presentation focused on transition to adulthood for young adults with mental health issues or disabilities and is now available for to view. There were many resources given in this presentation and the presentation is downloadable in a PDF format as well.
