The Community Supportive Housing program provides flexible funding to agencies to provide supported housing for adults who are diagnosed with mental illness and co-occurring disorders. As part of the support services provided, staff is hired by contract agencies to provide on-site supervision for the residents and as-needed supervision to non-supervised group homes and apartments. Staff members also coordinate outside activities for the residents and work one-on-one to develop a housing plan that identifies the consumer’s ideal housing goal and the steps needed to achieve more independent living. Depending on facility needs, these funds can also cover other program expenses such as utilities, food, transportation, etc.

The Inpatient Targeted Transitional program assists persons awaiting discharge from Regional Mental Health Institutes by providing them temporary financial assistance up to 6 months for items such as rental and utility deposits, transportation, medication co-pay, etc. until their SSI or other income and benefits can be restored, thereby enabling them to move into community settings when they are clinically ready. These are people who otherwise would need to stay in the Regional Mental Health Centers because they do not have the resources necessary to begin their life outside the institute. Payments are not made to the individuals, but rather directly to the vendors, such as the landlord or utility company. TDMHSAS contracts with community agencies in each service area which then work with the Regional Mental Health Institues to identify individuals eligible for the program.

Recovery Within Reach
is a web resource for individuals on the path to recovery from mental health, substance use and co-occurring disorders. It offers resources, research, art, personal stories, links, and help for the friends and family members of someone who has a mental illness or substance use disorder.

Search from the menu on the left side of the page to explore the resources available related to education, housing, employment, transportation, and supportive services here: http://www.recoverywithinreach.org/

For assistance, contact the webmaster Gerald.Pitts@tn.gov.

Licensed Supportive Living facilities in 11 counties are eligible to apply for $2.00/day support per eligible individual for up to 30% of eligible residents at each facility. The purpose is to help maintain the financial viability and therefore availability of these housing opportunities for people with a history of mental illness or co-occurring disorders that, in most cases, do not receive support from other sources except resident rent. Because facility and individual resident eligibility changes month to month, funding is distributed through a Departmental Purchase Authority rather than contracts with individual agencies. This program is mandated by TCA 12-4-330 and receives an annual designated Legislative appropriation.

Without this funding, the quality of life for residents of these facilities would be reduced; in some cases, this might cause the facility to close.In those cases, some residents can be expected to become homeless, become involved with the criminal justice system, or require inpatient psychiatric hospitalization at much greater public cost.

Funds distributed via Departmental Purchase Authority in the following counties: Dyer, Davidson, Hamilton, Hardeman, Knox, Lincoln, Madison, Obion, Shelby, Warren, and Wilson.

Please contact 615-741-9259 for further information.
