Getting Mental Healthcare To Transition Age Youth

Jan. 9, 2013 8:06 p.m.

After the mall shooting deaths of two people at Clackamas Town Center and the incomprehensible loss of 20 young children and seven adults at Sandy Hook Elementary, we're looking into some of the potential ways to prevent such tragedies. We've discussed security in schools, mental health resources for parents and kids, and most recently, gun laws. On this show, we'll find out what kind of mental health care is available to youth ages 16-25, also called "Transition Age Youth."
