Mental Health Residential Services

The DeKalb CSB Residential Services program provides residents with an apartment and wrap-around services designed to help each person live a healthy, full and self-determined life. The program provides housing options for individuals with severe and persistent mental illness who are homeless or have lower income and would benefit from support in a residential setting.

Mental Health Residential Services are integrated therapeutic, rehabilitative, skill building and recovery promoting services. Individuals gain the skills necessary to allow them to remain in or return to naturally occurring community settings and activities. This structured supportive housing program is designed to teach residents the independent living skills they need to manage the symptoms of their mental illnesses and to maintain stable housing.
