November 2013Vol. 14, No. 8Money Management Tip Sheet for Youth

Transitions RTC at the Center for Mental Health Services Research at the University of Massachusetts is geared toward supporting youth with serious mental health conditions and helping them complete their education. RTC provides a number of resources for youth, service providers, and policymakers on a range of issues affecting this vulnerable population.

The tip sheet Telling Your Money What to Do: The Young Adult's Guide offers youth information about starting a budget, managing money resources, cutting spending, and more. To help youth understand money management, the tip sheet offers a comparison chart demonstrating the expenses of eating out, owning a pet, or even buying coffee, and how these expenses add up over the course of a week and a month.
