Just like anyone else, these young adults may have medical and mental health care needs. But unlike other young people, once they age out of foster care, they no longer have the same financial and emotional backing at home.

                        Unfortunately, these young people rarely receive the emotional and behavioral health services they need because of a lack of insurance and family support.
