If your loved one has a serious and persistent mental illness, they may need help to find housing that works for them, and extra services to help them live well. Supported housing is the term for this type of housing.
HereToHelp's has put together an entire magazine on supported housing, what it is, what resources exist and what experience families and persons with mental illness have to share around supportive housing. Check out this excellent resource here
