As you get older, YOU will begin to make choices that will affect your health. Here at Got Transition we hope to support you to make those choices carefully. We want to provide you with information, tools, and connections to other youth, and also people who work in the health care systems - so that they will understand the things you are scared or worried about. It is the hope of the team at Got Transition that when you feel supported, involved and empowered in your own health care, you will be more likely to have a positive transition experience!
