Narrative

Located in downtown Quincy, South Shore Mental Health’s Transition Resources and Community Supports (TRACS) program serves 16-to-25-year-olds who are currently in treatment for mental illness or co-occurring mental illness and substance abuse issues.

Focusing on family, relationships, education, employment, and other young-adult issues, TRACS connects clients with mentors and peers who have shared similar experiences and can provide first-hand advice on overcoming challenges, gaining independence, and achieving success.
Our Successful Employment Program (SEP) serves young adults who have been treated for a major mental illness within the past year and are searching for employment. Available to 16-to-25-year-olds, SEP is a voluntary program that seeks to facilitate client recovery by increasing accountability, responsibility and independence within the community.

South Shore Mental Health’s SEP employment specialists work closely with clients to help them research job opportunities, complete and submit employment applications, attend job interviews, and provide on-site support and feedback once employed.
