UCSD: Gifford Clinic TAY Program and Walk-In Clinic

UCSD Gifford Transitional Age Youth Program integrates prevention concepts aimed at stabilizing and potentially minimizing the progression of specific mental illnesses for transitional age youth clients. The UCSD TAY Program operates within the overall treatment structure of UCSD Gifford Clinic, but specialized procedures allow the needs of transition age youth to be addressed from the perspective of Bio-Psycho-Social Rhythm Therapy. This focus supports TAY youth to develop behaviors and a supportive environment that both optimizes his or her functioning and minimizes his or her dysfunction. Treatment supports the youth, not only in managing mental illness, but also in maintaining daily life self-management and functioning within social relationships and vocational experiences. Clients interested in setting up an Intake appointment must present for screening by appearing during Walk-In Clinic hours Monday through Friday 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
