1. Jackson, Brianna. Exploring the Mental Health Care Experiences of Youth Transitioning from Paediatric to Adult Psychiatric Services Using the Photovoice Method: A Participatory Analysis of the PhotoSTREAM Project.

Degree: 2019, University of Western Ontario

The transition from adolescence to adulthood brings with it many new challenges and stressors that may negatively impact psychosocial wellbeing. Unfortunately, the disjointed progression from paediatric to adult psychiatric services leaves transitional-aged youth (TAY) vulnerable to its deleterious sequelae, including social isolation, self-harm, substance use, and suicidal ideation. As devised, the Canadian mental health sector is ill-equipped to meet the care demands of emerging adults, resulting in undue suffering. Current evidence validates the need for clinical practice reform and policy revision to address this issue, yet the perspectives of young people are consistently underrepresented in conversations regarding youth-oriented psychiatric program development, despite a desire to share their personal narratives. This paper describes the findings of a youth-led participatory action research (YPAR) study conducted in London, Ontario, Canada. An acronym for Supporting Transition-Readiness for Emerging Adults with Mental health challenges, the PhotoSTREAM Project explored the perspectives of eight TAY (aged 18-24), who progressed from paediatric to adult psychiatric services within the province of Ontario. Through a combination of photography, focus groups discussions, and individual interviews, the Photovoice method was employed to illuminate TAY interactions with the mental health system during this period of transition; thereby, highlighting the strengths and shortcomings of existing policies and practices that impact quality and continuity of care for this age demographic. Insights gathered using this collaborative, participatory, and action-oriented research framework contribute to an enhanced awareness of psychiatric service delivery gaps experienced by emerging adults, and advocate for seamless and supportive transitions that more effectively meet the needs of the TAY population.

2. McKay, Katie. A New Approach to Transition Planning for Transitional Aged Youth with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities .

Degree: Center for Applied Disability Studies, Brock University

The current study was designed to gain a greater understanding of how transition planning is being done in the Niagara Region, as per the Integrated Transition Protocol, and to examine the barriers to the enactment of this protocol in relation to youth participation and implementation. Further, the study focused on uncovering whether youth were better included in their transition plans since the implementation of the protocol, and on discovering ways to better include youth in the transition process overall. Through a pragmatic qualitative research design informed by the theory of emerging adulthood and by a social model of disability, the perspectives of 14 professionals were explored through questionnaires, focus groups, and individual interviews. From the collected data, the following themes were found: (1) there continue to be barriers that hinder youth participation and the successful implementation of the protocol; (2) professionals feel youth participation is important; however, families continue to play the primary role during the transition process, despite a reported disconnection between the hopes and dreams of the families and the youth; (3) transition planning and practicing meaningful participation need to begin earlier; (4) the transition ends when the protocol ends so there is a gap between children’s services and adult services, and the realities of adult services are unknown to many; (5) there are many benefits to integrated transition planning; (6) we must move past keeping youth “busy and safe” and ensure that they are participating in meaningful activities; and (7) it’s a new process, but the right process. These themes are discussed in terms of their implications for the current transition policy in the Niagara Region and elsewhere in Ontario so that the voices and dreams of youth with developmental disabilities are included and respected during the transition process in hopes of improving their post high school outcomes and overall quality of life.
