The THRIVE Center for Emerging Young Adults


A Peer-Based Life Skills Program
For Failure To Launch Young Adults

Is your young adult “stuck in the basement” – struggling with school, jobs, friends and video games?

Are you looking for a way to help them get moving towards a more confident, motivated and self-sufficient life?

Move Up logoThen consider Move Up:

  • To get your young adult started in entry-level care for struggling to launch challenges
  • As a skill-based “add on” to enhance existing mental health care

What Is Move Up?

MOVE UP is a new program of Heron’s Gate that helps struggling to launch young adults start building a foundation for independent young adulthood. It focuses on providing the support, training and practice that will help your young adult develop basic skills in three key areas:

  • Life skills
  • Social skills
  • Emotional self-management

Move Up does not specifically treat the mental health needs of your young adult, such as depression or ADHD. If needed, those services are available through a more intensive, higher level program within Heron’s Gate.
