Improving mental health and crisis care
YAI supports people of all ages experiencing crises. Our programs look holistically at individuals, their families and circles of support, and available community resources to assist people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and co-occurring mental or behavioral health needs. By focusing on strengths instead of deficits, YAI equips people to develop and sustain positive relationships, limiting the need for emergency room visits and interactions with law enforcement so they can use their own strengths in meaningful ways.
YAI has a broad range of services for people with I/DD. From residential, day programs, and schools, to kitchen skills, crisis services, and independent living supports for people in the community.
