About Young Adult Services

Young Adult ServicesYoung Adult Services (YAS) is a large program at the Institute of Living, part of the Hartford HealthCare Behavioral Health Network, offering a variety of services tailored to the unique needs of young adults ages 18 to 26.

YAS is a unique program that addresses the specific developmental, educational and social needs of people in this age group, and focuses on empowering them to lead full and productive lives.

With each new YAS patient, our team starts by learning how the individual understands their
mental health difficulties, how they see their identity within these challenges, and what their
motivation is for seeking treatment.
