MHCCI's Residential Program is a voluntary, recovery-oriented program providing a secure, structured residential option for adults with serious and persistent mental illness. These services are provided to assist each individual in achieving various skills necessary to reside in the least restrictive environment possible with the goal of reaching complete community integration.
MHCCI operates both "supervised" and "supported" community housing facilities, congregate facilities that provide necessary behavioral supports, furnishings and nutritious meals. These facilities target adults with severe and persistent mental illness who are unable to live independently, who have a history of poor compliance with treatment, multiple psychiatric hospitalizations, and poor independent living skills.
Supported Community Housing is designed to provide less than 24 hour, seven day per week supervision, skills training, and supports. The typical length of stay for clients in these facilities is less than 24 months.
Supervised Community Housing provides on-site, 24-hour supervision. The typical length of stay for clients in supervised community housing facilities is 12 to 18 months.
Residential services are available in Springfield.
