does this apply for transition age young adults-16-18 years of age. now I understand that the adult age in new York state that can prosecuted is 16. the problem with this age is that they are still like a kid developmentally and socially. I also understand the social determinants of mental health is playing a large role in their life whether they like it or not. second question: can their be a discharge planning specifically designed for TAY in corrections/ that can be included with the Medicaid design to support the discharge of this age group. third question: can this be something that OMH and DOCS can do together as a collaboration for those transition age youth/young adult population in docs that is 6 months away from discharge
