In a post on Youthtoday.org, Kamala Joy, program manager for family and youth at Via Hope in Austin, Texas, offers recommendations for supporting positive re-entry for youth transitioning back to school following an extended absence for mental health treatment. As an example, she describes Bridge for Resilient Youth in Transition (BRYT), an approach used in Massachusetts. BRYT includes meeting with the student, parents, student’s psychologist along with the school nurse and and a school administrator to plan and prepare for the transition and support the student during and after the transition.
