The program serves adults who are diagnosed with mental illness and co-occurring disorders who are residing in supportive living facilities. This program reduces the likelihood of hospitalization and the use of acute care, increases community tenure and the likelihood of employment, ensures that consumers receive the needed services in order to successfully integrate into the community, improves the quality of life, and reduces the reliance upon more costly services.
